 good location for wedding hike
Hi folks. I live in Milford, NH and am trying to find the ideal place for a wedding ceremony. I'm looking for something that has a great view (mountains, lake/pond, or waterfall) which is a pretty easy hike no more than 45 minutes AND has an access road for folks unable to hike. Pack Monadnock is our first choice, but we've been told that the time of year we want to do this is VERY busy with hawk spotters from the Audobon Society. So we're looking for alternatives. If it's accessible via ATV that may also be an option. Any suggestions would be great. Ideally it should be within 45 minutes of Milford. Thanks again!

I think you've picked the only option that fits your criteria. Auto roads that go to the top are rare to begin with. 45 minutes from you I think this is it. Agamenticus in York Maine is nice but it's more like 1:15 from you.

Mount Equinox in VT has a toll road access, and the summit has stunning views. I found it a pretty easy hike, but it one's perspective obviously depends on experience and fitness level.

Biggest downside for you would be the drive, probably coming in at least about 2 hours from Milford.

Nothing in NH comes to mind so maybe others might have some ideas. The only one I can think of would be Cadillac in Acadia but that's in Maine.
What about something like Cannon that has a tram? I think Cranmore does too but I haven't been there in ages.

If you're willing to drive to Maine there is Mt. Battie too in the Camden Hills State Park. Nice little hike up, great views and the auto road to the top. Not quite as far up the coast as Cadillac. You could get married atop the tower while everyone watched from below.

Check out Cathedral Of The Pines in Rindge.

It has a great view of Monadnock, is accessible, and is affordable.
