One of my favorites! Definitely take the Wapack up, and the Marion Davis down. Great views of Monadnock early on (not so much at the summit). I went on a weekday and literally saw 3 other people. Went more recently on a weekend, and it was busy, but not overwhelming. I was fortunate enough to see the Boston Skyline and snow covered Mount Washington both times! Fairly easy hike, and would absolutely recommend for new hikers!

After a warm spell the last couple of days I thought I would give this a try with my dog. It was a nice work out scrambling up boulders and searching for a path through the large patches of ice covering the trail. Took about an hour and fifteen min stopping a few times for water and to let people pet Marley. After we got to the top we jogged down the access road to finish the workout. Crampons needed for this trail right now.

The hike was just the right amount of challenging and the beauty along the way with the winter icing was gorgeous! The trees protect you from the wind on the trail but not at the top so dress warm if you go mid winter! The hike heats you up but once you stop moving and are out in the open brrr! Have fun
