Great Monadnock via the Pumpelly Trail

Saturday, April 27, 2019 12:00 AM

Come hike the longest (9 miles round trip) and in my opinion the most beautiful trail on Mount Monadnock!
After beginning with a gentle ascent through a hardwood forest, the trail follows a ridge line for much of the hike until it breaks out of the trees and turns into an open expanse up the rock slabs that leads to Monadnock's beautiful summit.
