Did you know that the 2nd most hiked mountain in the world
sits in our own backyard? Yup, it’s Mount Monadnock!
(Do you know which mountain is first?) The appeal of
Monadnock stems from its rocky, open summit that affords
360 views across three states, and its enigmatic history. I hear
there’s a secret spy cave located somewhere on its eastern
Unplugged Adventures will lead a guided hike from 10:30AM
to 2:30PM, leaving from the Monadnock State Park
Headquarters. All participants will receive instruction on
map-reading, and hiking and backcountry etiquette.
Depending on the group size and make-up, we’ll choose
between several trail options for our ascent.
A summit lunch and reflection will highlight our day. Kids will have ample time to explore the summit, take in the views and learn more about the mountain.
$60/pp registration fee includes round-trip transportation (passenger van or bus),
event and park fees, and snacks/water.
Drop-off and pick-up will be at Ellsworth-McAfee Park, Rt. 135/South St. in Northborough.
Participants should bring lunch and water, and should dress for action and appropriately
for the weather. Please apply sunscreen before coming!
