Here is a view of Mount Monadnock, the most climbed mountain in the world.
If you have never climbed this Monadnock, I suggest that you call the State Park office at 603-532-8862 and talk with them first. Do not
bring any pets with you. When it is warm, be sure to bring some water. It generally takes between 1 1/2 hours to
four hours to climb the mountain (depending on the trail and your physical condition). Most injuries occur on the way DOWN
the mountain. -- Use caution and DO NOT RUN when descending. People as young as six and as old as 80 climb this mountain.
However, people with physical limitations should rest frequently.
The Following pictures are quite large and most viewers will want to use the navigations arrows on your browser to see the entire scene.
Sunup often reveals a beautiful panopoly of clouds as the first rays of the sun outline Monadnock.
August brings still another appearance to Monadnock and the morning glory sets the scene.
|Monadnock has many appearances. Sometimes intimidating and often quite beautiful. In order to catch the majestic feeling of the mountain on a misty June day, I included the large picture below.
Here is the first snowfall taken in October 2005. Note that not all the trees have turned color yet. We had a very late first frost.
You may wish to stay at East Hill Farm (a delightful country inn resort within walking distance of the Marlborough Trail). The Marlborough Trail is my favorite because you quickly reach the tree line and have many scenic views from the Mountain.
East Hill Farm (603-242-6495) is a popular place so you should make reservations well in advance.
