Started around 11am. We parked a car at each end. Trails were clean and very well marked. Overall this hike was moderate difficulty. It had heavy inclines in certain areas but enough plateaus for you to catch your breath. Beautiful views along the entire hike, with mulitiple viewing offshoots. The Cliffs are a great place to stop and have lunch. Show more

From Old Mountain Road to the peak of Pack Monadnock. Overall a good trail with sections in some swampy areas so be aware during the wet months that this will be a wet trail. Trail is well marked with WHITE '' on trees and is fairly easy to follow. There is are also two scrambles up some rocks so use caution.Show more
