  • Wear your hiking boots! You will need them. There is a lot of rock scrambling at the top of the mountain. It's definitely a challenging hike. The views are fantastic. The crowds can be a bit much but ...  more »

  • Crowded when I visited (in the Fall), but it's a great hike only 2 hours away from Boston. I took to white for trail up, and I found the difficulty to be moderate to hard. The terrain and incline varies a lot making for a fun hike. Views along the way are amazing and incredible at the peak. Parking was $5 per head in the car.
  • Beware of busy trails if you visit on a summer weekend. That being said, there are plenty of alternative routes to the top, so if the parking lot is crowded then you may want to consider avoiding the main trail. The hike is only a couple miles up with some moderate terrain, but the summit is spacious and offers everyone who commits to making the climb a 360 degree view.
  • Such a lovely day hike for the autumn season - appropriate for young kids and families too. I have an out of state license plate, and it only cost $5 to park for the day. The White Dot trail is the most direct route to the summit, but I'd recommend coming down the White Cross trail, especially in icy or wet conditions.
  • I haven't camped here yet, but I've hiked on multiple trails. Great views from the summit on a clear day, and varying levels of terrain to make it up there. 4 hours is more than enough time to get a good hike in. I recommend the white dot to white cross trail if you have your sights on the summit.
  • Excellent area to hike with beautiful views. I went early November and got to see the leaves changing color. The hike up Mount Monadnock takes about 3.5 hours if you take the white dot trail up and the white cross trail down. There's a $5 per person entrance fee.
