Moosilauke is a favorite NH Peak of mine with many trail options. This double traverse intrigued me as I had never gone up the Beaver Brook Trail. I started at Glencliff trailhead around 6:30 am - few cars in the parking lot for Labor Day Weekend. It was pretty foggy and temps in the high 40's- Perfect for running. When I summited it the fog had not lifted. I found my way down Beaver Brook via the large cairns. Beautiful waterfalls, steep and technical with rocks and routes. I filled my UD race vest bladder with 1.5 liters of Tailwind and had 2 gels which were just perfect for today but on a hotter day, I would have run out of water. I have not seen any other women attempt this one so now is the time to follow suit.
