Featured Mountain:  Mt. Monadnock, Jaffrey, NH


     It has been said that Mt. Monadnock (3,165 ft.) is the second most hiked mountain in the world after Mt. Fuji in Japan.  Whatever the case may be, if you look around the summit on a summer day, you'll see scores of kids and adults enjoying the fine views from this very popular peak. Mt. Monadnock is located off Rt. 124 in southwest New Hampshire in the town of Jaffrey. The mountain is the centerpiece of the 5,000 acre Monadnock State Park. There are 40 miles of hiking trails, a visitor center, a campground with 21 tent sites and 7 youth group sites, a camp store, bathrooms, and shower facilities. The park is open year-round although services are limited from November through April. Because there are no mountains of similar size nearby, views from the treeless summit stretch far into the distance into surrounding states like Vermont and Massachusetts.  To learn more about Mt. Monadnock, please click here for the Mt. Monadnock page.
