Mt Monadnock is spectacular 3,165 foot summit, offering 100-mile views of the surrounding area. Monadnock is said to be one of the most climbed mountains in the world, second only to Mt. Fuji in Japan! Now that early Spring is upon us, join us for a 4.5 mile hike in milder winter conditions.
There is a $5.00 admission for Mt Monadnock State Forest.

We will be taking the White Cross and White Dot trails and stop for a trail lunch at the summit. This is a challenging climb in any season. Some winter hiking experience is required along with the proper gear. Be prepared for windy and colder weather in summit area. Trail conditions should be softer because of expected thaw.

Snowshoes, microspikes, gaiters, and
poles(recommended), either hiking or skiing.

At least one 1-2 liters of water
Snack food and trail lunch.

A thermos with hot chocolate, soup or tea is always good to
bring on a winter day.
