Hello, I am from parts south and am looking to access Moosilauke for a day hike this winter. I have hiked, summer and winter and climbed ice in the whites for several years but I know nothing of mountains that far west. In particular, what Forest Roads are open, I have the AMC's white mountain guide, it says when some roads are gated in the winter but other times I have found that it doesn't; I get to the road and it is gated, oh well. I would like to take either the Benton, Glencliff, Carrage Rd., or Gorge Brook trail. My dayhiking partner has a small amount of winter experience in the whites and would like to have an "above treeline" experience. Basicly we would like to take a short, not-so-steep (no front pointing or dicey french technique)trail to the summit of Moosilauke, weather permiting. I'ld love to know what roads are gated and, if possible, opinions on what trail would best suit our goals. Thanks in advance.
