Gap Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A short hike leads to blueberry picking and an open summit that offers views to Mount Monadnock and the Green Mountains of Vermont. Situated just south of the legendary Mount Monadnock, Gap Mountain rises from the valley floor and offers a more tranquil and less strenuous experience for families with kids than its big brother to the north.

An easy 1.3-mile hike leads to open summit views that allow you to see directly across the valley to the granite slab slopes of Mount Monadnock. A busy summer day here may see a few dozen hikers cross over the summit, but nearby Mount Monadnock sees 500 to 1,000 hikers on the same day, with 125,000 hikers summiting every year. What Gap Mountain lacks in size, it makes up for in solitude, ease, and natural beauty."
