This is the one of the peaks on the Fifty New England's Finest which I am starting to work through.


Mount Moosilauke is a 4,000 footer in New Hampshire and counts as one of the 48 for the state, in addition to the New England 67 and the Northeast 115. We'll also hit South Peak on the way down! Do not make this your first hike in the White Mountains, and do not make this your first 4,000 footer unless you've done comparable peaks with similar elevation gain in the Adirondacks, Maine, or Vermont. You must have completed at least 2,500 ft elevation gain previous to this hike, and if you do not know the difference between elevation gain and elevation, please do not sign up.


Length: 8.5 miles


Elevation gain: 2,700 ft elevation gain

Please answer the questions below before joining if you do not have an extensive Ridj-it history on your profile:


1. What hikes have you completed this summer? List the distances/elevation gain if they're not well- known.


2. What is your weekly exercise routine like?


3. Is this your first hike in the White Mountains?


Mandatory gear (no exceptions - don't sign up without the gear):


1) Hiking boots (no sneakers)


2) 3 liters of water


3) Headlamp


4) Lots of food


5) Gatorade or electrolyte replenishment (seriously)


6) Hiking appropriate attire including waterproof shells in case of rain (no jeans, no cotton)


7) Copy of the map above on either Gaia, AllTrails, or printed


8) Sunglasses


9) Hat


10) Sunscreen


11) Mask for when you can't socially distance


12) Map of this hike (seriously - have it on you somehow): https://www.gaiagps.com/public/gmOSj0KJwVKd0e6k70SXdviJ


13) Light jacket in case of cold on top of the mountain


Expectations


1) Carpool is limited to two riders per car, so three people total. Please do not fall asleep - keep your driver company.


2) If you're a no-show or cancel last-minute in a predictably flaky fashion, I will not allow you on further trips with me. You're free to attend others' hikes though.


3) You will wear a mask in the case that you are not able to appropriately maintain social distance. No exceptions - do not attend if you can't abide by this. During the hike the expectation is to leave space between others, so be prepared to monitor your proximity.


4) If you find yourself physically unable to finish, that's okay! No shame, and in fact, big respect for knowing your limits. Sometimes people have bad days - it's alright, but have the humility to quit if you know you can't finish at a reasonable pace (~2 average MPH). You will be responsible for guiding yourself back to the parking area if you are unable to finish - do not expect anyone to go with you.


5) Do not attend if you have had COVID symptoms in the past week or two. You will be turned away at the trail head if you look sick.
