Moose Alley Magic: A Guide to Moose Watching in Pittsburg, NH

Nestled in the heart of New Hampshire’s Great North Woods, Moose Alley in Pittsburg stands as a haven for those hoping to witness a moose in its natural habitat. Since many of our guests stay with us during their moose-seeking adventures, we’ve put together some tips on how to safely observe this iconic creature.

  • Know That Timing is Everything:

Moose Alley's allure lies in the chance to witness moose during their most active periods—near sunrise and sunset. As the sun's golden rays paint the landscape, moose tend to venture out to feed and roam. Remember, patience is key, and your dedication to timing could be rewarded with a breathtaking encounter.

  • Exercise Caution:

When driving along Moose Alley, keep a watchful eye as moose (and other wildlife) frequently venture onto the road, day or night. Exercise caution while driving to ensure the safety of both you and the moose.

  • Respect & Observe: When observing moose, keep a safe distance and avoid cornering them, especially if they are accompanied by their young. Watch for signs of potential aggression, such as raised hair on their backs, laid-back ears, or lip licking. Note that if a moose ventures slowly toward you, it’s not trying to become your friend—it’s likely seeking a hand-out or warning you to stay back! Admire them from a distance and allow them the freedom to roam without disturbance.

Whether you're a seasoned nature enthusiast or an adventure traveler, a trip to Moose Alley offers an unforgettable opportunity to witness moose in their natural splendor. So, book your stay at North Country Lodge and Cabins, pack your binoculars, and get ready to witness a magical moose viewing experience!
