Join us for an amazing and challenging 10.2 mile loop hike to one of the most spectacular views in NH! Elevation gain will be 3,600 feet. The giant of the Carters is upstaged by its spur, Mt. Hight, but still, there are good views here. Mt Hight has the finest has the finest view point of the Carter-Moriah Range.
Beginning at the Nineteen Brook Trailhead, we ascend for 3.8 miles to Carter Notch Hut where we can re supply with water. We’ll then take a very steep 1.2 miles climb up the Carter-Moriah Trail to the summit of Carter Dome. Descending off the Dome for .8 miles we will ascend to the summit of Mt. Hight and hope for clear skies that will allow us 360* views of the Presidentials, Baldfaces, Carters, Moats and Ossipee’s. We will descend Mt. Hight to the Zeta Pass and take a left onto the Carter Dome Trail for 1.9 miles reconnecting with the Nineteen Mile Brook trail which will lead us back to the trailhead.
