  • Great hike up to the summit today. This is not an easy hike. There are bouldering sections and elevation gain similar to some 4,000 footers. One ice patch left.  more »
  • BRING LAYERS! This hike is a great workout in both endurance and strength. The trail starts off with a very long slight grade and then ramps up to a steep and rocky assault. Parts of it are a climb...  more »
  • If there was a view, we couldn't see it through the fog. If it hadn't turned to wind driven rain at the summit, we may have waited for the fog to dissipate. The wind was brutal too. It felt so good...  more »

  • It was a great experience to hike on the Monadnock mountain. This was my first time, so it took 2.5 hrs to reach the peak. I went with four friends. Lot of hikers were hiking from early morning itself. More than 5 trails were there. We followed white dot and returned back through white cross trail. Overall we all enjoyed well.👍👍👍😁
  • Absolutely Beautiful! We went on the White dot trail up and the white cross trail down. Strenuous and very rocky. However, the 360 degree view at the top is well worth it! I would recommend lots of water, a big snack, and a windbreaker for the top. There was plenty of parking and it was $10 a car. No dogs allowed.
  • Easy access, needs a bigger parking lot at the arrow trail head. You'll have to pay if you arrive later in the day. However trails are well maintained, it's very easy going, expect done very very light climbing near the top of you stray off the beaten path. If you're medium fit and just walk it without any real hustle, up and down in about 2.5 hours.
  • Beautiful view from the peak. We took the white dot trail while climbing up and white cross trail while climbing down. I would say it's not an easy hike. Definitely wear comfortable clothes and good hiking shoes. The hike to the peak and back is around four hours. 5/5 😃
  • Fantastic mountain to climb. The views are tremendous from the top. There are lots of trees and flowers to enjoy too. I highly recommend it. We climbed the Marlboro trail which is very rugged. My son has also climbed the Dublin trail and says it is much easier.
