Day 123 – NH

Glencliff NH to Kinsman Notch – 9.5 miles
1795.9 / 389.4

Staying the night in the Hikers welcome hostel, they allowed us to Slack pack the monter mountain that is Mt Moosilauke. We were dropped off at Kinsman Notch and hiked south back to the hostel. Without a pack I was able to make the 4000 ft climb in about 1 hour and 45 minutes. A very steep climb, next to a water fall. There were wood steps and rebar hammered into the rock to help with the climb.

We got to the summit to some of the best views we’ve had on the trail! This is why I hike! Being above tree like in the white mountains is as close to heaven as I can get.

I chilled on the top for an hour and a half, just soaking in the views. Made it down the mountain and back to the hostel by 1. A good day!
