Miller State Park, Peterborough NEW HAMPSHIRE

Pack Monadnock has always been an Eastern Mountain Sports Favorite for low impact winter hikes. True to our roots, this 2,290 foot summit has long been an inspiration for our vision of Winter Sports and our Passion for Outdoor Adventures.

Located at Miller State Park, Pack Monadnock offers a big mountain feel with little mountain efforts. Its trail network winds its way to a wooded peak with a fire/cell tower and views of the surrounding southern New Hampshire Mountains. The Majestic Monadnock Mountain can be seen to the west 12 miles away with its prominent rocky summit and surrounding hillsides. The summit auto road is closed during the winter months and affords hikes an easier way up or down than the surrounding wooded trails. The local Native Americans names it “Pack” to denote its “little” size, buts its views to the north including Mount Washington or its southern skyline including the city of Boston are grand. It once had a hotel at the peak near the fire tower, buts its history revolves mostly around the locals using this friendly peak for outings and recreation.

Most of the time we ascend the peak on the Wompac trail 1.4 miles to the summit through a wooded granite winding trail and descend on the Marion Davis Trail or the Summit Road. These three options are perfect for snowpack or hard ice trail conditions and are a perfect warm up for many of our longer hikes including its big brother to the West. We will use snowshoes or micro spikes to provide float and traction for this frozen terrain. Come explore winter hiking with our experienced guides and learn how we outfit and layer in order to have fun outside during the winter months!

Visitors are expected to pay the $4 per person admission fee by feeding the Iron Ranger in the parking lot off of Route 101. So please plan accordingly and bring 4 one dollar bills to help support all the hard work New Hampshire State Park Systems do.
