"Behind Japan’s Mount Fuji, Monadnock is considered the second most climbed mountain in the world. Its name is derived from Native American words that are now used to describe any mountain with a unique geologic formation that stands high above its neighbors. Mount Monadnock’s size, relative solitude, and barren summit, most recently torched by overzealous wolf hunters in the nineteenth century, provide some of the finest views in New England. A vast trail network scales the many rocky ridges that emanate from the high point, with most visitors conquering the peak from the Monadnock State Park entrance on the east."

The Cliff Walk was excellent! Lots of varied terrain with a wooden ladder, rock scrambles, flatter areas, and vegetation ranging from pine forest with needles underfoot to subalpine with stunted trees and bushes and then deciduous trees . There were nice outlooks along the top of the cliff, and of course a great view when we got to the very top. We took the White Arrow trail down because it was quick, but next time I think we'll scout around for a different route down that isn't as eroded and straight.

up the White Dot, and down the White Cross, on a fun-filled geocaching trip- trails were virtually snow and ice-freeabove treeline.

There are many different trails that access the summit. In the fall we like to hike the Cliff Walk trail as it runs along the side of the mountain and give many spectacular views of the fall foliage. We just completed the Marlborough trail on Saturday and after all the rain that we have received I was amazed as to how dry the trail actually was. It was a beautiful view from the summit and a great day for hiking..
