Mt Moriah is a 4000 footer overlooking the town of Gorham, NH, at the north end of the Carter Mountain Range in the White Mountains. There are a number of different trails that climb to the summit, but the most direct is the Carter Moriah Trail continues past the summit over North, Middle, South Carter, and Carter Dome before ending at Carter Notch. Climbing 3400′ of elevation in 4.5 miles, it’s a fun trail to hike with lots of west-facing ledges and views of Mt Washington and Mt Madison. The Carter Moriah Trail starts at Bangor Rd in Gorham, NH Those ledges are fairly benign when they’re dry but when they’re wet or covered with ice, things can get tricky. It’s less of a problem in calendar winter (starts Dec 22 or 23) when there’s snow on the ground and the trail has broken out and been packed down by hikers, but trail conditions are much more variable and unpredictable in November.
