Carter-Moriah Trail

Highlights

  • The Carter-Moriah Trail goes over Mount Surprise. It is relatively easy except if wet because it is comprised of much bare rock.
  • Moriah is the northernmost peak in New Hampshire on the Appalachian Trail and the second northernmost 4000 footer in the state.
  • The views from the summit are outstanding and it is said that on a clear day you can see the Atlantic.
