Pack (South Pack, to be specific) doesn’t attract as many hikers as its formidable neighbor Grand Monadnock, though a steady stream of vehicles chugs up the summit road in season. From the mountaintop on a clear day you can see—if not forever—at least to Boston and to the White Mountains. While you’ll share these panoramic views with the tourists, you’ll find solitude along the Wapack Trail, which winds for nearly 1.4 miles through heavy woodlands to the summit. This rugged footpath challenges young hikers with just enough rock scrambles and steady climbing to make things interesting but not overwhelming.

Hiked this a lot when I lived in NH in the 80's. Easy trails and pretty view from the top. I recommend it to everyone. We always had lunch at the top.

This is a very nice hike, and a great way to get aging legs ready for the bigger hikes to come this summer.
