Mount Monadnock is one of the most beautiful mountains located in the heart of Jaffrey, US. You must have heard about this mountain as it got featured in the writings of the famous Emerson and Thoreau. Located at 3,165 feet above sea level, Mount Monadnock is 1000 feet higher than any other famous mountain peak. The rocky and isolated summit of this mountain makes it one of the most climbed mountains of the world. The summit is barren due to a fire that took over and destroyed the greenery of the mountain. Nevertheless, the mountain still offers some of the best views among the other mountains.

Mount Monadnock Reviews & Ratings
A small mountain but amazingly steep. I call it a mini Mt. Washington!!! Nice views. Getting older so I had to stop a lot while my 12 year old son kept going. He loved it!
I live in California but I grew up in New Hampshire. I hike frequently. In fact I did 6 peaks last winter in one day. I've hiked much higher peaks as well but Monadnock has my heart. I enjoy the white dot trail. It's a real butt kicker. Beautiful views on the way up, at the top, and on the way down. On clear days you can see Boston 80 miles away, Vermont, and the White mountains. Falcon Springs at the beginning of the White Dot and White Cross trail head has cold amazing water to drink and cool off with. The best 3100 foot peak with a nice breeze and 360° views.
Did this hike for the second time a few weeks ago and enjoyed it just as much as I did ten years ago. Went up White Dot trail and down White Cross, it was just as hard going down as it was up. Get ready for a good workout, about 4hrs round trip, plaus however long you stay at the top. Bring lots of water and pack a lunch, you'll have a good day!
Excellent hike! Lots of rocks, steep incline, but very rewarding with the views!
Great hike with a fantastic view up top! You can barely make out the view of Boston, just gotta look for it. Be sure to wear the proper foot wear, as there's lots of climbing on the way up with ice and water in the way depending on the season. I went mid April and there were times I almost fell/twisted my ankle on the ice.
