Wapack trail (yellow) moderate climbing large rocks at times muddy after rain from Gordon last week. One hour hike up. Lots of bird watching at Raptors Migration saw falcon. No colors yet! Beautiful views though of area mountains. Took the Marion trail ( blue) down not as steep and rocky one hour down. Great afternoon hike!

Great trail. Very quiet and perfect workout!

I did the Marion Davis Trail up. Very muddy from the rain the night before. If you're hiking anytime soon, make sure you wear some good hiking boots. I ended up just walking down the road instead of the trail due to the mud and slippery rocks. The summit has some nice views. Just try to ignore the parking lot, at the top

Great easy hike, on a clear day you can actually see the tall buildings in Boston from the top of the fire tower.

good warm up trail

Fun moderate hike. It had my gf and I stopping to take breaks but we aren’t that in shape lol. We live about 10 minutes away and it’s great to do after work. We did some geo caching that made it take a little longer. Altogether it took about 3 hours with the searching for caches. We did not mind the parking lot up top one bit. The fire tower was cool to get some good views. Will be frequenting this mountain!

Hiked this trail yesterday - limited parking. Moderate hike - great views. Clivus Multrum toilets, fire Tower & small refreshment/shop at top with bubbler for water on side of shop.

This is a challenging hike for the novice. The summit is great and there is a fire tower there.

Excellent hiking trail! Went up Marion Davis and down Wapack Trail. The weather was beautiful and we got some amazing views of Mount Monadnock and could even see Boston. The bathrooms were very clean. The only reason for 4 stars....I don’t like coming off the trail at the summit and walking onto a parking lot. And, I would rate the hike as moderate.

Overall great trail, however the top is a disappointment due to cars being able to drive up. I took the blue up and the yellow down, I would reverse it next time. The yellow was pretty rocky near the bottom, and I would rather climb up that in the beginning, than down at the end. The also yellow had a couple nice overlooks to stop and get a view. Bring cash to park.

Rating should be changed to moderate

Awesome hike! It’s Memorial Day, cool, cloudy, and still wet from the rain last night...I’m not sure how that affected the traffic but it was a perfect crowd. We didn’t feel alone but it wasn’t so packed that you have to hug a tree to let people pass every few minutes. My 10 year old daughter and I found the hike up Wapack too easy so we took the loop trail around the summit before heading down. It was our first time hiking on wet rocks but there was enough soil on the Marion Davis trail down that we didn’t get into trouble. I would not want to do that on Monadonock!

Only reason for a 4...didn’t love the parking lot at the top.

Views at the top were awesome even though it was a bit hazy. This was the first time I had done this hike. Went up the blue trail and came down the yellow trail. Don’t think I would do it in reverse. Yellow trail involves a lot of climbing near the bottom before it eases up a bit. Make sure you have good shoes. Only issue were the bugs. They were out with a vengeance.

Beautiful day to see these views! My only complaint was the bugs were out with a vengeance. Took the yellow trail up and blue back. The way up involved a lot more climbing. Wear good shoes.

For an inexperienced hiker its a pretty nice hike, but if your experienced this hike is a breeze and you can do it fairly quickly. If your able to hike this on a day with little to no clouds you can actually see Boston, Massachusetts from the top of the fire tower.

The trail starts off by steeply ascending a rocky slope with decent views. The grade then moderates, and reaches the summit at about 1.4 miles. From the fire tower, there are great 360 degree views of southwestern New Hampshire, the Green Mountains, and–on a very clear day–the Boston skyline and the White Mountains. The return route steadily descends over rolling terrain before reaching the parking lot.

This was my first time doing a winter hike and the challenges were outstanding. Once we got up to the summit, the views were magnificent. And then the walk down was beautiful. Thank you Jeanne Blauner and Rick.

Solid up hill right from the start to the peak of Pack Monadnock. Some craggy sections early on. There were people counting the migration of raptor species of birds which is cool, made for some interesting conversation at the top of the hike. Continued on the Wapack Trail up to the North Pack and back before continuing down the Marion Davis trail. Fun descent can be made quick tip toeing and dancing across rocks. There was some surface coming down so spots where slick. All in all a good fall hike.

Wonderful! Would describe as moderate-to-hard. Lots of rocky sections, sometimes slippery. Next time, I want to bring binoculars to get in on the birding action. I continued on the Wapack Trail to North Pack summit, the spot with the cairn, which took me about 1.5 hours. Wish I had continued onto Cliff Trail but was worried about the woods getting dark.

I hiked the summit road in the dark, a bit spooky & arduous with a 20 lb pack full of camera gear. Well worth the hike. See my uploaded shots of the sunrise. Although not on the All Trails list of trails it's a good climb

A bit disappointed to see cars at the Summit. Great hike after a day of rain. Rocks weren't too slippery and you can hop from rock to rock and that way not destroy the trails. Up Wapack, down Marion Tr.

Nice trail. The kids did very well and enjoyed reaching the top. If they get too tired or weather starts looking off, there is a road trail to take the family back down. Will return!
