One star taken away due the black fly season. They were terrible. Other than that, what a workout! I am knocked out. I love climbing. It is going down that kills you. I recommend hiking sticks. Save your knees

Great trail. A bit foggy halfway up onward but got nicer as the day went on. The second half of the trail is very rocky so be careful. Beautiful route

I would rate this combination of trails as moderate to hard. The White Dot trail is steep in places but is a scenic way to ascend the mountain. Pumpelly has expansive, awesome vistas. Cascade link is a nice walk through mature forest and is a gradual, manageable descent. Overall this is a great hike and a solid workout. Be prepared with food and water, bug repellent, and sturdy boots. Expect to see a lot of people at the summit, but the views are worth it and there is plenty of space to spread out.

Gnarly as usual!!

Argggg I’m kind of a meh on Monadnock. It’s just way too crowded. But great view at the top and great workout.

Hiking up the mountain through rocky trail was super exciting. Obviously, the trail was tougher but the scenic view from the top was best ever.

Our favorite family quick hike!!

It is a great trail, but it's hard, not moderate for sure. Great scenes, amazing views. This trail is close to 10 miles, not 7. Seven miles will be just one circle around Summit.

Great hike with scenic views the entire way. Only a couple of very steep areas for climbing. Definitely worth the hike!

It’s hard to know how to rate this trail. The route is a crowded, wide and steep highway of rocks to scramble over, difficult to follow on the granite ledges at the top, and not pleasant to hike, so the trail itself is very poor. But the views and the ledges at the summit are amazing! By all means climb Monadnock, but just don’t take this trail.

Reservations are recommended since there’s a maximum number of people allowed per day. Very nice hike, steep at times but nothing too crazy. There are some “rock climbing” portions. Very windy at the top.
