Pack Monadnock and Miller State Park Trail

Pack Monadnock and Miller State Park Trail Professional Review and Guide

"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."

I hiked Pack Monadnock on 6/16/18 as a solo hiker. I hiked up the Wapack Trail and down the Marion Davis Trail. The Wapack Trail was steep with rocky boulders at the start, which became easier for the rest of the trail. I thought that was the most challenging part of the trail. I did see a couple of other hikers with large dogs struggling at the start of the Wapack. Otherwise, I would rate the trail moderate. It was a clear day with good views at the summit. Surprisingly not oo buggy anywhere on the trail. This would be a great hike for anyone on average fitness. There are picnic tables at the top so you can enjoy a lunch there.
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.
