Hike Mt. Monadnock
Mount Monadnock is one of the most climbed peaks in North America and about a 30 minute drive from the inn. From the Park Headquarters, we have hiked the White Dot Trail to the Summit. It is 2.3 miles each way, but it felt like 5 miles due to the elevation change. There are several other approaches to the summit that are even more challenging. Click here for directions.
