Mt. Muise

Hiked Mt. Muise on 10/25/16 with Bill and Diane Schor. It was a cloudy day with a few snow showers and temps in the high 20s and low 30s. Muise is located off Nash Stream Road north of the town of Stark. We were able to drive about a mile further on the road than we anticipated as the gate was open. That made the hike about 2 miles shorter than we planned. We still had to walk about a mile along Nash Stream Road and then a short distance on the Cohos trail before we started our bushwhack.

Once we started the bushwhack it was pretty open forest, there was one short section where it was sort of thick spruce and steep and one short section of really awful thick spruce. For the most part though it was a really nice bushwhack.

We reached the summit about 11:15 but didn’t linger very long. There weren’t any views and it was cold and windy so all we did was sign the register and head back down.

It was nice having snow on the ground as we didn’t have to follow a compass bearing to return, just follow our tracks. We ate our PBJs in the warm car on the way home. Only 14 peaks left to finish the New Hampshire 100 Highest.
