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.

The was a beautiful so I drove to the top and there, from the fire tower, we could see Boston and all of the surrounding mountains. Lots of hikers, families.

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.

Really wanted to drive up the summit but the road does not get plowed so we couldn't go. Looks like they close the road during the winter. Saw some what of a view driving home.

It is directly across from Temple Mountain. You can drive up to the summit if you wish, I enjoy the challenge of climbing both trails Both a very challenging but well woth the trip to see the vies and the Raptor Sanctuary that call this place home. Eagles, Hawks, Blue Herons are all very common to see

Fabulous scenic views, especially from the fire tower. Great bird watching - take advantage of the raptor release in October. Good hiking trails to the summit - easy to moderate, but you can also drive to the summit on well maintained auto road.

This beautiful state park is located on a 2290 foot summit in Pack Monadnock in Peterborough, New Hampshire. We took the windy paved road up to the scenic summit rather than the hike but lots of beautiful "smaller" hikes at the summit. The roads are very well paved and the grounds staff was actually blowing the leaves off the road... More

Other sites may have greater numbers, although this site can usually bost about over 10,000 raptor visitations, but you will be hard pressed to find better company. Henry, the official Audobon counter is not only quick to point out sightings but he also willing shares his vast knowledge with young and old so that we may improve or skills of... More
