WickedRuggedWhite Dot Trail  Sucess!


Climbed this guy twice, don't remember exactly when. It was my first hike in NH way back when I was a kid, and I loved it. My second trip was also great, but I did feel like there were just too many other people on the trail for my liking. I would recommend trying to find a time when there are fewer people, but it is enjoyable all the same.

Golly. I grew up climbing this hill. Good hike for kids. Can be quite popular and busy in the summer. Wait till the fall. I went to school nearby, so I must have climbed this literally, a dozen times! ha ha

Did it with my wife and our 1 year old (ish) son. I had to wear him most of the time but I'm sure he loved it. We did.

Up the White Dot down the White Cross. Very crowded trail. Perfect conditions, 70 degrees and sunny. Solid wind at the summit, upwards of 30mph. Fun Hike/Scramble.

This is the most climbed mountain in North America. it is covered with people and is very much the antithesis of why i hike. on a positive note however there are many areas throughout where bouldering is good. all 5.5 type stuff so no ropes are necessary.

If you live in New England, you have to climb Monadnock! A great hike with great views. Good for kids.

vapor0278fun mountain for beginners  Sucess!


i've also climbed Monadnok on atleast 3 other occassions. i've done the white dot trail and red spot trail. i would have to say the white dot is more fun. though red spot is challenging, the white spot is a little more relaxed and with a few good places to scramble it can be a lot of fun!

Climbed this in the summer of 1991, The one thing that stands out in my memory of this hike is the large crowd on the summit. It's a little different out west.

Date Climbed: Oct 4, 1999


Coming from the Rocky Mountains of Utah, this peak was easy, but beautiful. Rewarding views from the top. The hike through the woods, scrambling up the granite was my favorite part of the hike. I could see the towers of Boston from there - it was very cool. Hiking the mountain made me feel at home for a few hours. The day we hiked it, we were one of the few groups on the trail - the solitude was wonderful. There are some pretty lakes in the area too. I wish I had the time that I could have camped out and built a campfire and slept under the stars.

I climbed this mountain twice in the early 60's as a teenager, once with my family and the other time with our church youth group. It was the first mountain of any size that I ever climbed. The most amazing thing was the cool-aid stand at the top: runners would scuttle up and down the granite slopes to bring refreshment for us thirsty hikers (at a small price). The weather was cool enough that you wouldn't think to bring water along. Now when I climb, water is one of the main considerations. It was crowded even then, but still a really nice place to spend the day.

For a while I climbed Monadnock at least twice a year - as a season-opener and a season-ender. This year I kept hiking year-round, but still climbed it twice. This weekend's climb was a fallback plan due to iffy forecast further north and a foot of new snow - still met a dozen people on the mountain. A very fun little hike if you don''t mind crowds.

Great hike, I love the rime ice. You sure wouldn't know about the 125,000 people each year if you only did it in the winter! If your're interested, check out my trip report "Double Jeopardy". (Sorry, no idea how to make a link)

5inch powder on top of mostly ice. Didn't need crampons, but they could have come in handy on a few scrambles. Passed about 8 people in total, a record low for Monadnock.

Crazy night outing. Day of planning for a weeknight overnight hike. We got there around 11:30pm and slept on the summit for sunrise. We then return to our vehicle and went to work. A great mountain for this kind of foolishness.
