Comments
Comments: Hiked up Glencliff and then the Carriage road to the summit of Mt. Moosilauke. We got an early start as the heat was forecasted to be quite hot. We made the correct decision as many " crack-of-nooners " didn't look too happy climbing Glencliff in over 90 degree heat and humidity.

I like this trail because there really aren't any losses when hiking it.....think Garfield Ridge trail, up down, up, down, lather, rinse repeat. Glencliff does not do this. Some of the rock on the upper end of Glencliff can be a bit slippery from the moss and lichens but with thoughtful foot placement not an issue. The junction with the Carriage road was fine. No issues. We were on the summit by 0930. Just us and a bunch of northbound through hikers. The views were OK. A bit hazy but still good. We were thankful to be off the mountain by noon as the sun was blaring.
