Grand Monadnock Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A quick climb to a popular bald peak followed by a descent over lengths of open rock to a subpeak with more expansive views and then through a quiet second-growth forest back to the trailhead. Located in Monadnock State Park, Grand Monadnock is a National Natural Landmark and the third most hiked mountain in the world after Tai Shan in China and
Mount Fujiyama in Japan. Over 100,000 people per year climb its many routes to its spectacular bald summit, the highest point in southern New Hampshire.

A monadnock is a stand-alone peak unattached to a ridge or range. Grand Monadnock towers over the surrounding countryside, isolated from the rest of the White Mountains,
only 10 miles from the Massachusetts border. On a clear day, you can see points in all six New England states. No wonder Monadnock is so popular!"
