Mt. Monadnock Hike Bago
« on: February 28, 2016, 09:47:52 PM »
Hi all, today Hachi and I discussed wanting to go hiking...so...the plan with plenty of notice...

Saturday October 1, 2016

Mt. Monadnock, New Hampshire

We are planning on a full day hike to get up the mountain have lunch at the top and hike back down.  Round trip would be up to 5 miles depending on the response and interest.  Starting between 9 or 10 am we would be done around 3pm

Who's in?

That's a long hike from Kansas in the middle of a semester!  I'm likely to be pulling my hair out next October as I work to finish my culminating experience - our version of comprehensive exams.  It would be awesome to take a fall hike where there are actual trees and hills to see...but I doubt I can work this one in.

I'm in, but will require a reminder (or 3) before then. I have trouble planning for next week, let alone October!

Is there a ski lift at the top for people who are too exhausted to hike back down - haha.

Ok, ok. Count us in. What are a few blisters between friends?

Mt. Monadnock is located in Jaffrey, NH, here is a link to the state park website for any questions about the hiking.

http://www.nhstateparks.org/visit/state-parks/monadnock-state-park.aspx

Also my kids want to join me for this so I'm thinking this is a kid friendly event.  Honestly they will most likely hike ahead anyway...lol.  So if anyone wants to bring kids along...mine are all teens from 14 to 19.  I've hiked this route with scouts from 11 to 17 before without trouble.  There is some hand over hand rock climbing but nothing technical requiring any gear other than decent shoes.

The route I wold like to take pending weather conditions...

Starting at visitors center...White Dot Trail...bear right to Cascade Link...left onto Spellman Trail...left onto Pumpelly...to Summit, have packed lunch

Decent, pending weather...White Arrow Trail...left onto Amphitheater Trail...to Bald Rock...to Lost Farm Trail...left onto Parker Trail leading back to parking area.

Here is the map... http://www.nhstateparks.org/uploads/pdf/MonadnockHikingTrailsMap_All_2010.pdf

I'm really looking forward to this so far we have...

If it is kid friendly, I may very well be in with DD. A lot depends on soccer schedule but if she can't make it, I may be able to get her to stay at a friend's house.

So count me in - I'll figure out a way to make it work.

So glad I came on here tonight. I haven't checked in for months and months!
