Nice trail hike. Not too strenuous and can be completed in an hour or two. Fire tower at the top offers a nice view as well. Some trails around the top offer different perspectives of the surrounding monadnock region.

I have been going to the park for almost 45 years and it is a great way to spend part of a day, good views with good weather and the blueberries are great.

Cars are permitted to climb to summit of Pak Monodnock Mt. Grand views of southern New Hampshire to Mass. on clear days. Bird watchers frequent this spot during migratory seasons. Picnic tables, restrooms, ranger platform all on top. Lots of hiking paths

Pack Manodinok was a grueling climb to the top. The path if you will was over wet boulders covered with wet leaves and muddy running water to the 2300 foot summit. We came off the windy summit on the windward side and it was much dryer with fewer leaves but still treacherous if you are not careful. We still had... More

The trail we took was extremely difficult. It is rated as medium difficulty, but I disagree with that. The view is beautiful from the top, steep road to drive up.

Wished we had known that the climb up Miller State park was somewhat steep with many rocky areas . We are certainly not young but are very active and walk many miles daily. It was a beautiful fall day so many leaves on the well marked path which made for slippery going. We stuck with it and it took us... More

Good enough to get married up on top....great scenic views. The fee keeps down the number of visitors and allows for good experience.

An excursion to Miller State Park used to be wonderful -- and still is, except for the installation of tolls. I understand the need to realize funds in this sadly tax-free state, and think NH residents as well as flatlanders should support the park. But it is a terrible drawback to have the park closed to all except on popular... More

Miller State Park offers breathtaking views in all directions.There are hiking trails but if you are not feeling that energetic, you can drive to the summit. Although the road is steep and winding, with a couple of hair pin turns, the road is not right next to the edge, so it is not too anxiety provoking. At the top, there... More

We loved this NH state park; had no idea what it was going to be until we got to the entrance. We elected to drive to the summit (approx. 1.5 miles) and were rewarded with a phenomenal view to the north, east and south. Even caught a glimpse of Boston which was some 50 miles away. It didn't hurt that... More
