Ascent Trip Report

Started in Miller state park parking lot and followed the Wapack trail to the summit of Pack Monadnock. Climbed the fire tower to get some views. The park ranger had given us a map that you can use on the tower to locate each of the mountains in the distance. Continued on the Wapack trail to Middle and North Monadnock. We took the Cliff trail from there and got a nice view south while eating lunch. Hiked back along the Cliff trail to Wapack and all the way back to Pack Monadnock. From there we took the Marion Jones trail back to the parking lot. 8 miles, a nice stretch of the legs.
