Hall Mountain (4/19/03)
Hall Mountain the highest elevation in Bear Brook State Park in Candia, New Hampshire is popular local hike for many people in the Merrrimack Valley region. Though not truely a mountain in any significant measure this summit comes with many splendors, including a decent view, and delicious summer blueberries.

Hall Mountain can be summited via the easy Class 1 Hall Mtn. trail. The trail itself transforms from a summer hiking trail to a winter snowmobile trail. Hall Mountain is one of the few mountains that can be summit in April (mud season) without significant erosion. With a total roundtrip approach of 2.0 miles this summit can and should be done during the morning or the evenings when the best pictures can be taken.

Take Merrill Road roughly two miles until it intersect with North Rd. Go right on North Rd. which will turn into New Boston Road. Make a left on Podunk and stay on Podunk Road past Currier Rd. It will turn into a dirt road. Keep on Podunk Rd until you reach the blocked off road. Be sure not to block off the intersection.

Red Tape

From Podunk Road there is no permit required. However the rest of Bear Brook State Park requires a fee.

When To Climb

Hall Mtn. can be summited all year including April. There is a mud season but little trail erosion will happen on what is already a snowmobile trail in winter.

Untitled Comment

The place where the photos were taken (and the survey marker was before someone stole it) was at the 925' summit here

The trail circles around the 941' peak, you need to bushwhack at least .1 miles to get there

Small spelling error

Hello, I found a small spelling error I wanted to bring to your attention as a courtesy: Though not truely a mountain in any significant measure this summit comes with many spendors, including a decent view, and delicious summer blueberries. Perhaps you meant "splendors"?

TH info

Podunk Road no longer dead ends at the TH. The TH parking area is on the left side of the road as you head north, shortly after the road turns to dirt.

Summit vs Pictures

As Royswkr mentioned the photos are from a secondary summit (43.0937 N, -71.3592 W) to the west of the true Hall Summit (43.0925 N, -71.3544 W). The summit of Hall has no views and is some distance to the SE of the trail. There is a logging road, paralleling the trail, near the summit and it is marked with a few cairns.
