Since March 13th when everything shut down, I decided to take on a little hiking project to help get through the doldrums of this pandemic.
I live in Vermont only around 20 miles from Mount Monadnock, so I decided to climb every trail on the Official Monadnock Map. I just finished red-lining the entire map yesterday (Or orange-lining which is the color highlighter I used LOL).
It was an awesome experience climbing these 40 miles of trails over the past two months. I finished it off with a bushwhack to the summit.
I would say the best trail is the Pumpelly trail. Cliff Walk is another fantastic trail with amazing interesting rock terrain and killer views. The toughest would be the Red Spot and Spellman trails. Monadnock as some impressively challenging terrain and in my opinion encompasses everything an awesome mountain should be.
