First few miles of the Wapack Trail starting from Windblown in New Ipswich. Best lookout of Mount Monadnock is halfway between Barrett & New Ipswich Mountains. Great trail, challenging and beautiful!

Trail is across the street from where you park in a small wooded area. trail is thick with vegetation, bring a machete or a knife or love ticks all over you. not many people on it. long trail with elevations that will wear you down, bring lot's of food and at least 4 liters of water. wear long clothing or you'll get bitten alive. sun block. after Barrett mountain down the way there is a nice view peak before the next mountain. went on a 97 degree day so it was a hell of a workout. 50/50 sun verse shade. lot's of frogs, spiders and butterflies. getting to Barrett mountain is fine but you must be ready if you're walking the WHOLE trail. Barrett mountain at like the first 2 miles or so more or less of the whole 10.6 mile trek one way. we went to the second mountain new Ipswich in 3 hours then turned back.

This was a nice trail. A bit overgrown at the beginning, a lot of grass and vegetation up to about the knees at some parts. Still worth trekking through as it was only about a mile like this on and off. The part where it starts going uphill a bit is not too bad, only about 1/2 mile pretty steep. Very moderate hike for the length. We hiked 8 miles and it took us less than 4 hours of actual hiking time. The views weren’t spectacular but they were nice at a few different parts. The best one we saw was about 1/2 mile or less after the Barrett peak and before the next peak. Cool day hike! Have fun :)

Mostly an easy walk with some up hills. A few lovely views. Mostly shaded with some sunny spots. It was high 80’s so we were thankful for the shade. We turned around at the 4 mile mark so we walked a total of 8 miles. We went on a Tuesday morning and never past another person for the entire 8 miles. Parking for the trail is across the street. I would consider this hike a long casual walk in the woods. Perfect for an afternoon with some friends.

This trail was fair at best. It was a pretty location but the views could’ve definitely been better. I did manage to get quite a bit of a work out following this trail and then some of the others that crossed it along the way. There were plenty of moose tracks around but I didn’t actually get to see a moose this time.

a little slushy in some areas but it made it a little more challenging and fun. Not too crowded. Great views.

A nice spot for a late fall hike. A lot of the ridge had great views of Mt. Monadnock, and there are a variety of interesting artist-made rock piles along the way

Pretty unique but boring trail. The lower portion was a wide flat grass-covered access road that eventually started to climb gradually through grass and ferns. The ascent was easy and not rocky at all, but once you got to the top, there were absolutely no views, as you were walking through a flat pine forest.

Did this as a one-way hike by dropping off a car at the north end, then circling back to the Watatic parking area. The most interesting and scenic portion is certainly the first couple of miles as you get to the top of Watatic, the rest of the Wapack trail is much more lightly trafficked but not nearly as scenic. As you never clear the tree line, views are limited. Very manageable, though, in 4 hours.

Had high hopes for this trail. Followed directions to this address and parking was confusing. We started up the Wapack Trail and after a mile it was blocked off due to construction of a gas line. Would have liked to have known this prior to driving an hour.

A nice hike through the middle section of the Wapack trail. Less traveled than some of the other sections.
