 N/S Pack Monadnock NH 1-27-07
Date(s) Hiked:1/27/07

Trails(s) Hiked: Wapack

Total Distance: 7.4 Mi

Difficulty: Hard

Conditions: Cold, Snowy, Icy

Special Required Equipment: Stabilicers

Trip Report:

Abster joined me on this out and back from Rte 101 to North Pack Monadnock. The rock on the trail were pretty tricky as they were nicely coated in ice. Views were pretty decent once the snow stopped falling (about 40 miles). We started in the single digits temperaturewise, and ended at about 16 degrees in the afternoon. Good times!


For more trip report, and of course, pictures go here (South park fans will be amused by one of them): http://www.hoosactunnel.net/nonhoosac/N ... ock070127/

I did this trip a couple of weeks ago. It sure was great to wake up late, drive a relatively short distance, hike a real hike and still be home in time for dinner! :lol:

Looks a little more white up there than I got, so your lucky on that count :wink: . In hindsight, the only thing I would have changed is we would have used the Cliff Trail (that I read has some neat views) since the section of the Wapack that it cuts out is a little bland. But overall I enjoyed it very much. Glad you did too!

The Cliff Tr is pretty cool. The boulder field at the base of the cliffs would be fun to explore someday.
