Cardigan State Park spans 5,655 acres and is an excellent area for hiking. A mountain road leads to trails on the west slope of Mount Cardigan as well as a trail to the summit. Mount Cardigan's 3,121-foot treeless granite summit affords outstanding views of west central New Hampshire, with a panorama that includes Mount Monadnock and the White Mountains, Camel's Hump in Vermont, and Pleasant Mountain in Maine.

A great view for the short hike that it is! Lovely on a clear fall day. A nice warm layer recommended

Great views and not super difficult. It's a quick hike. There's a fire tower, too.

Great view, very easy hike. This is another good one for kids, or in winter, for me, its a good place to get in shape for snowshoeing and winter hikes in the Whites.
