“A lollipop loop to the summit of the South Peak of Moose Mountain.”— Matthew Geason
At roughly a half mile in when crossing over Mink Brook, the trail will cross over a Class IV road. Continue straight towards the swamp and skip the Harris Trail that leads to Harris Cabin.
After following the trail up to the summit of South Moose Mountain, you'll find wreckage of a plane crash from 1968.
Continue on the trail that travels to the north summit of Moose after crossing a summit bog downhill. The trail enters the col between the north and south summits and intersects with the Clark Pond Loop. This loop run continues to the left by following the Clark Pond Loop.
Clark Pond Loop eventually intersects the Harris Trail. Follow this trail back to the four-way junction you previously crossed before going up the mountain. Take a right and retrace your steps back to the car.
