North Moat Mountain

Trip Report/Photos from Kettric

Weather too good to pass up, departed Deana's Baths Parking area to ascend Moat Mountain Trail. Leisurely walk for the first 2.5 miles, then you start the steep ascent through a fairly steep forest floor that eventually lets out onto open ledge sections with some spectacular views behind you. Some snow and ice in the last quarter of a mile to the summit that is navigable without microspikes, but used mine on the descent to remain sure footed.  Had the summit to myself for lunch and the 360 degree views with clear skies and a cool wind.
