There are great views on Pack Monadnock as well as bird watching. If you don't have the time to hike up, take the mountain road to the parking lot on top. You can go up the stairs of the lookout tower and check out the view (but the top enclosed room is usually locked). If you find your yourself in... More

I am in pretty good shape (yoga, walk/cardio every week) and this hike was very challenging. It was steep both up and down. I would advise to wear some strong shoes, bring some snacks and water.

We went up the Wapack Trail and down the Marion Davis Trail. It's a nice hike, mostly moderate with a few steep sections, and only 2.8 miles round trip. It was very icy when we did it, and microspikes were essential. Nice views at the summit, well worth it.

My partner and I set out on a cold Novembers morning and enjoyed a well organized and safe trail. It was sunny so we weren't hampered by wet rocks and the views were amazing the entire way up. The view from the top is priceless!

Beautiful! Shojuld be made available to everyone, every day spring through fall. As it is, toll collection slows everyone down and closes down the beautiful Milleer State Park most of the time. We used to be able to hike or drive to the top at night to stargaze, see comets and eclipses, etc.

Wonderful hike in the great outdoors. The colors of the leaves at this time of year are amazing. Definitely will be back.

On a clear day you can just see Boston but you'll have no trouble seeing other mountains from the senic overlook atop this peak. There's also a raptor viewing area where hawks and eagles are counted as they fly over the park on the migration down south.

We went up to experience the views and were not disappointed. It was a bright sunny day and the leaves were changing. It was beautiful. There was also a wedding going on at the top, which we thought was great. This did not seem to affect parking. We easily found a spot by the fire tower. Great views and trails... More

Great little trail (1,5 miles each way) in NH. We hiked with another family and 4 kids in total (5-9). All of us has a blast scrambling on the rocks and the great view from the tower at the stop. Make sure to pick up a map at the parking lot. Took us 3 hours with a long lunch and... More

This is a challenging hike for beginners and the path can be steep at times, but there are several trails with degrees of difficulty. The summit has a tower as well as several viewing areas. You can drive to the summit as well. The mountain is also the site of bird migration, but you have to catch it at the... More
