“The most direct route to the summit of Mount Monadnock from the Park Headquarters.”— Jon Mac
Please note that no camping or overnight use is allowed on the mountain outside of designated campsite
From there, the trail becomes much steeper, rockier and can become very technical for the inexperienced. About halfway up the trail, runners will begin to break the treeline and start getting glimpses of the horizon and the surrounding countryside. At this point, the trail is almost entirely rock slabs and will remain so all the way to the summit.
Upon reaching the summit, visitors are rewarded with a full 360° view of southern New Hampshire. On a clear day, the Boston skyline is visible to the east and on the best days Mount Washington and many of the White Mountains are visible to the far north. Other landmarks visible from the top include: Mount Wachusett, Quabbin Reservoir, Mount Greylock, many of the Green Mountains in Vermont and Mount Ascutney.
