Had an amazing time hiking Mt. Monadnock this past weekend with my boyfriend. Took us just over 2 hours round trip to complete this short 3.8 mile trip, snow was deep in places but we made it up fine with micro-spikes. At just over 3000 feet Monadnock is a perfect little mountain to introduce someone to “above tree-line conditions”. We decided to make a weekend out of it and stayed at the state campground, note to all those interested it IS open year-round. The tent sites were beautiful and we were able to have a campfire, which helped with the cold and fact that we were the only ones at the park. Overall it was a beautiful little hike and friendly campground.
