Day Trips, Boston: 18 reviews and 29 photos
Monadnock State Park is home to regionally famous, 3,165-foot Mount Monadnock. Under two hours from Boston and about one hour from Nashua, NH, Monadnock is the world's second most climbed mountain, after Mount Fuji. The park contains 40 miles of trails, many leading to the mountain's peak.
As you approach the top of Monadnock, the thick woods gradually gives way to a an alpine environment, then finally a bar rocky peak. In the winter, it can be 40 degrees and sunny at the bottom, but windy, icy and frigid at the top, so dress appropriately.
On a clear day you can see 100 miles in each direction, into all six New England states!
Further north are the White Mountains, a favorite destination for Boston leaf-peepers each year!
