Great, relatively easy hike. You can take one way up and a different way down which is nice. Picnic tables & restrooms on top are a plus. you can also drive to the top, which we did after our hike just for fun.

While one can walk to the top of Pack Monadnock in Miller State Park, we rightly decided to drive up the narrow paved roadway, which was single landed in certain sections. Our car did all the hard work, and we could enjoy the wooded scenery....More

Hike was a little longer/more of a workout than anticipated but totally worth the view! Took yellow trail up and road down. Fam friendly but must keep close eye on kids.

It was a perfect day to take a drive up to Pack Monadnock at Miller State Park. I pass this several times a month and decided to check it out. It was only $4.00 to drive the auto road. I had my camera with me...More

Walk or drive up the switchbacks to the summit from whence you can see Boston on a clear day. It’s a wonderful place to watch the raptor migration in the fall, and a lovely stop on the Wapack Trail.
