Spent time hiking the trails and talking with the raptor observer this fall. The views are great on a clear day and if you have questions, the ranger is very helpful.

Road to top of mountain very narrow. Our group had a picnic and the sky cleared by the time we finished. Enjoyed walking around and especially enjoyed visiting the raptor viewing area and talking to the staff there.

The views from the auto road and the top were still great, but unfortunately the predicted peak foliage was nowhere to be found, due to the very hot summer we had. Everything was either still green or bare. But -- the views were still great.

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

Pack Monadnock offers several hiking trails and a drive up road for scenic overviews of Monadnock to West and Boston (on a clear day) to the East. I enjoy the hikes. From the park, which charges an admission fee you can access the road to...More
