I live near the base of Monadnock. Hiking it over the years, the halfway house way is my favorite. You get a great warm-up as you walk up the dirt road. The trails go in and out of difficulty as you progress through them, but it all makes for the best hike. And the views at the top are so worth it. My favorite place on this planet is up there. Find “Nature’s Recliner” at the top. It’s a rock formation that faces the sunset and is shaped like a reclining chair.
