Hikers will enjoy more than 70 miles of trails that are well maintained and available year-round. There are three named peaks in the park, the highest being Mount Moosalamoo at 2,625 feet. The others are Hogback Mountain and Sugar Hill, although these are not accessible by trail.

As a National Recreation Area, Moosalamoo is managed by the U.S. Forest Service rather than the National Park Service. Recreation areas are meant to preserve recreational opportunities for visitors in places with a lot of scenic beauty and wilderness.
