Mount Monroe Trail is a 4.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Twin Mountain, New Hampshire that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Fantastic Scenery The trail is generally level for the first 2 miles at which time you will arrive at the gem pool. The last mile is VERY steep. Only the last 3/10ths of a mile is very exposed to the wind but in inclement weather that can be too much! Please remember that this is not a good place to hike in the winter and that Mt Washington has claimed over 130 lives. If you must go, you must know what you are doing and how to save yourself. The view of Mt Washington and of the Southern Presidentials is wonderful. We went on a day between fronts and were lucky to find -5F and a gentle breeze.
Best winter summit
One of the best winter hikes in the Whites
This was a very scenic, very up, very down, out and back. Ill definitely be back.
Beautiful views! Great trip up to. hit before the final stretch to Washington.
