The hike up Mousilauke (4,802′) via the Benton Trail is described in the AMC guide as moderate with good footing making this a pleasant and fairly easy route to the summit. It also describes the summit as exposed and could be dangerous in bad weather. The hike up is 3.6 miles, with an elevation gain of about 3,100 feet and it will take us approximately 3 1/2 hours to arrive at the summit. The summit has excellent views to both the east and west. We would meet around 8:00 am at the trail head (parking lot) on Tunnel Brook road off of NH 112 and take the Benton trail to the summit. This should be a fun hike and you will be able to hike at your own pace.
