Event description
Join us for a fun day of mindful outdoor adventuring as we train for the breathtaking Franconia Ridge Loop in October!

About this Event

This hike is one in a series of hikes I'm organizing that's designed to help people prepare for an adventure getaway I'm leading for the Franconia Ridge Loop October 4-6, whose rigorously challenging trails are rewarded with some of the most breathtakingly mountain vistas in all of New England!

Each hike leading up to our Franconia trek gets progressively more challenging, allowing new hikers to gain strength and confidence over time while making new friends and connecting with nature. Activities are free with suggested donation.

A very popular, steep scramble up a nice peak in Southern New Hampshire with great views from its bald summit.

Monadnock Mountain is reputed to be one of the most hiked mountains in the world with over 125,000 people climbing it every year. The hiking trails are very steep in places and can be rocky. It can easily be done in a half day. Older kids will have a ton of fun rock hopping their way to the summit on the steep trail and this hike is also a great place to see the changing leaves in fall. As one of the most climbed mountains, Monadnock is a very popular New England hike just north of very populated cities in Vermont and Massachusetts so you most likely won't be alone on the trail. Parking in the lot off of Poole Road can be a challenge, and the summit can be windy, so you may want to bring an additional layer for the top.
