Family Pack Monadnock Hike, Peterborough, NH

Friday, December 28, 2018 12:00 AM

Pack Monadnock Mountain at 2,290 feet, is the highest peak of the Wapack Range of mountains. We'll ascend up the Wapack trail, 1.4 miles, to the summit. Our return route will be 1.4 miles down the Marion Davis Trail (or the road, conditions - dependent). The ascent up the Wapack Trail from the parking lot is very steep at first, but levels out closer to the summit. The trail may be covered with snow and possibly, ice. Therefore, traction devices (e.g. microspikes) are recommended (Family Outings has some available to lend). The route is total of ~ 1000 ft of elevation gain.

I have been hiking with the Boston chapter of the AMC for two years and this will be my third winter hiking season. My favorite place to hike is in the White Mountains, but I live and hike in Western Massachusetts daily and enjoy Vermont very much as well!
