For a different hike,, start from Old Street Road on the Cranberry Bog Trail. Nice, easy hike along the stream and through the woods. Nice for walking your dog too. You can connect to Pack Monadnock trail for a long hike. Parking just off the road is free. Beautiful nature walk!

This is a nice spot to visit for hikers, birders, bicyclists, and leaf peepers. Excellent views from the summit and a few spots on the trails up. Summit has a small tower that allows views as far as Boston, or the White Mtns on a clear day. Two main trails to the summit from the state park parking lot are... More

This is a nice state park with gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains. You are able to drive to the top of Pack Monadnock, which is great if you are pressed for time or don't want a long hike, but still want great views.

Nice hiking trails. Easy to find markings and the view at the top is very nice too. We usually hike this small mountain a few times before attempting a climb to Mount Monadnock... Great family fun Days

But it was worth it. First I am 65+ years young and not an avid hiker so when I say the hike is a bit more than moderate, it was for me. The blue trail is the easier of the trails and is very well marked. It had recently rained so there were several muddy areas and some pretty steep... More

This is a beautiful place to hike up Pack Monadnock, or walk or drive up the auto road. You can get a great view of Boston from the top, and the climb is really very pleasant. Picnic tables at the top make for a nice break.

Great to hike the challenging trails or walk the road. Ride up is also available. Great in fall for foliage, views, and mostly hawk watching.

1.5hrs with two 3 yr olds to reach the top and when we made it the view made it soooo worth it! You can see Boston and Manchester NH... I recommend packing a lunch to enjoy when you reach the top.
