HIGHLIGHTS: This 5.7 mile hike follows the Appalachian Trail to the summit of Mt. Morrah and back from US 2 outside of Gorham, NH. The first 1.6 miles to the Rattle River Shelter are fairly easy as the trail climbs gradually along the banks of the stream that bears the same name. From this point on, however, the trail ascends steeply and the trail is rocky and challenging at times. Mt. Morrah is reached via the Carter-Morrah Trail just 0.1 miles off the Appalachian Trail. The views can be outstanding from here on a clear day.
