The Wapack Range rises above the dimpled landscape of southeast New Hampshire, one of the closest backpacking options to the Boston area. Wapack Trail runs the length of the range and earns its name from the starting and ending points (Mount WAtatic and PACK Monadnock). Its open peaks are loaded with blueberries and view-rich stretches. The trail between the popular summit hikes sees relatively few visitors and makes an excellent early- or late- season foray.
