"Hiked up the Beaver Brook trail (AT) in the rain. The waterfalls and cascades were awesome! Ran into a bunch of thru hikers on way up! Hit a cloudy summit and a handful of hikers hanging out. From summit we hiked down the Glencliff trail to another waiting car!" - blackwolf_03278, Aug 12, 2018
"headed to the moose to help Roger finish his regular season 48. We had plans to hike Friday and Sunday...but neither day looked good for views and after the latest snow storm we decided to flip and do the moose Friday and finish on owls head on Sunday. I was still recovering from the stomach flu which meant eating was tough...my energy was zapped so I let Roger break most of the way to ensure I made it back down! Felt significantly better on our way down...I even had an appetite which was exciting. No views, or at least 80% cloudy views. A great climb though...and the white every way you " - shay-shay, Mar 9, 2018
"Crisp, foggy, but beautiful hike via the pleasant Gorge Brook Tr. Thankful for bright orange summit signs and the hat and gloves I packed. 2.5hr up, lunch break slightly below the peak, 2hr down. No trekking poles or scrambling." - gooner, Sep 30, 2017
"Beautiful sunny day on the ground. Cloudy, windy, socked-in views (or lack thereof) at the top. We did get some views of the mountains peaking between the clouds on the South Peak on our stop on the way down." - HikeLikeMike, Sep 10, 2017
