  • It is the best to go early summer or early fall. It path is not very easy, you will need good shoes. once you get to the peak, you forget one hour hike that you had and just enjoy it. Definately going...  more »
  • There are great views on Pack Monadnock as well as bird watching. If you don't have the time to hike up, take the mountain road to the parking lot on top. You can go up the stairs of the lookout tower...  more »
  • I am in pretty good shape (yoga, walk/cardio every week) and this hike was very challenging. It was steep both up and down. I would advise to wear some strong shoes, bring some snacks and water.  more »
