Spellman Trail is a 4.4 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Jaffrey, NH that offers scenic views. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking and walking.
Short but sweet. Very steep with a lot of good climbing and scrambling. Taking the Cascade Link to Spellman and then Pumpelly up to the summit is a nice way to go that bypasses a lot of the crowds.
One of my favorite winter routes! Challenging and beautiful no matter the weather. With the crazy 2016 winter weather, only spikes were necessary as I tested my new mountaineering boots. This day was the most calm day I have ever had on Monadnock, no wind in January! Up Spellman, across Pumpelly to the peak and then ran down White Dot! Great day with Great Friends!
Not as rocky as white dot and white cross, a little longer but easier on your knees, gets steep and rocky towards the top.
