Monadnock State Park is located on 3,165-ft. Mount Monadnock which, with its thousands of acres of protected highlands, was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1987. There are 40 miles of maintained foot trails, many of which lead to the bare rock summit through unique alpine vegetation. Unsurpassed 100-mile views to points in all six New England states are the reward for a climb. The Monadnock Visitor Center offers interesting exhibits on various aspects of the park’s history, ecology, trails and trail information and maps are posted near the Visitor Center. Remember, there are no facilities available on the mountain. Monadnock State Park offers a great winter experience. Approximately 12 miles of the trail system in the lower elevations offers ski touring for the experienced cross country skier.
The quiet camping area of Monadnock State Park Campground, located at the base of Mount Monadnock, has 28 campsites and is open year-round. Services are limited after the close of the reservation season – pit toilets are open during the winter, but water and firewood are not always available, and the campground road is not plowed.
Pets are not permitted in the park or on the mountain. Please note that this law includes all trails and areas on Mount Monadnock.
