The hike up is quick but fun. Views from the top are wonderful, can even see Boston on a clear day! There is an air monitoring station at the top which provides interesting information about real-time air quality. If you cannot make the hike, there is an auto road to the top.
This is the base of Pack Monadnock. Our favorite hike! Challenging, but fun and definitely doable. Great views. Oh, and the workers at the entrance are always very nice!
Entrance fee is $4 per person unless you have the NH state parks license plate. This is the entrance to Pack Monadnock ("Little Monadnock"), with the peak available via two trails, both 1.3 miles to the top, or a paved road. This mountain makes a great beginner hike. There is water at the top and the truly out-of-shape can walk up a trail and walk back down the road. Road access is nice for families and the elderly or those otherwise unable to hike who still want to see the view. Unlike most mountains in NH, the top has bathrooms and running water. If you want to do a longer hike, you can climb Pack Monadnock and continue on to North Pack, the last peak of the Wapack trail, and then head back the way you came.
Beautiful hiking and great views. Kids were able to complete the hike easily yet the trails were sufficiently challenging.
Got the chance to visit Miller State Park in October 2015 while on a New England Road Trip. On the recommendation of the very nice woman at the entrance booth, I hiked from the lower parking lot up the Wapack Trail to the summit and back down the Marion Davis Trail. The day I was there was unusually warm, which made for some great foggy hiking. The trails were well maintained, and well blazed. It was obvious while talking to some of the park employees that they take extreme pride in caring for the park and it shows. I can't wait to return and explore more of the park and Pack Monadnock.
