Quick Description: Mount Success is a prominent and massive mountain in the rugged Mahoosuc Range that straddles the NH/ME border.
Location: New Hampshire, United States

Waymark Code: WMEBXZ
The lower slopes are typical Mahoosuc boreal forest; dense spruce and fir intermixed with deciduous trees. There are two broad, open summits of glacier-scoured granite hemmed in with blueberries and dwarf evergreens. The northern summit (3565') is slightly higher than the southern (3364'), though the southern summit (known as The Outlook) has better views.
Mount Success is the last NH summit encountered by north-bound hikers on the Appalachian Trail and the first of the real Mahoosuc summits. South of here, the range is composed of disorganized lumps and bumps. To the north, it becomes a more coherent range of rugged peaks. In a lot of ways, Success is the anchor mountain for the entire range.
Among locals, Mount Success is also known as the site where a Northeast Airlines DC-3 crashed in 1954.
Altitude in Feet: 3565
