Great Outing!

Love the challenge of the motor road. Even more of a challenge on the trails. Kills me to pay to use this for a hike. Paying two people to collect $$$. Nuts!

Fall in New England means admiring foliage and its myriad of colors. One of the best vantage points to appreciate this view is from atop Pack Monadnock with minimal effort, thanks to the auto road. Each year we make the drive up the mountain to check out the view and the tally of migratory birds by the Audubon Society. Climb... More

We had gone to Rhododendron State to see the rhododendrons but unfortunately there weren't any so decided to go to Miller State Park instead. The woman at the gate was a hoot! Worth the price of admission alone. ($4 per person). Even though it was an overcast & foggy day we had a nice drive up, picnic lunch at the... More

Great hike on a beautiful May morning. We climbed up the Marion Davis trail (1.4 miles/830 feet rise) and descended the tougher Wapack Trail (1.4 miles). Next time I shall reverse that order of trails. Wapack is a stiffer descent but likely a more fun climb! 50 minutes each way.!a great work out. Bring water! Lots of younger folks with... More

Pack Monadnock is a good hike for beginners or for those looking to get some views for modest effort. The trails are well maintained and easy to follow. On a clear day you can see all the way to Boston. Pit toilets are available and there are picnic tables on the summit.

We often visit Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge and combine it with a trip to Miller Park. Both provide amazing views, hiking trails and a rare taste of true Peace. We drive to the top and enjoy multiple trails an a view from the Fire Tower. A clear day you can see the city of Boston on the horizon.

Driving east on NH Rte 101 about 10 minutes from the Peterborough downtown district , watch for the state park sign on your left. Enter the parking area for trail hiking or stop at the toll booth to pay the fee for the auto road . For a NH resident under 65 it's $4 per person . A map is... More

Hop in your car and head to the hills of the Monadnock region. Great spot to take a 2-3 hour RT hike of modest challenge. No special skills required, several trails to choose from and you can even walk the auto road if you like. No technical skills required, sometimes muddy in spring/fall. Can be icy in winter.

The views are beautiful with lots of side trails to different look out spots. Pack you lunch and either hike or drive to the top. The open season there is a $4 parking fee.
