Route Description

From North Pack Monadnock...

This section of the Wapack is ranked at the second roughest section of the Wapack Trail. The trail begins off at a moderate climb. Then become gradual as it goes over a creek. Just before hitting a beautiful pasture at 1.1 you hit a some steeper pitch. The trail moderates once it hits the pasture and continues climbing at a moderate pitch. There are great view off to the east of the Uncanoonacs and the Lyndeborough Mts.

The continues off into the woods. The trail then alternates between moderate and steeper pitches. At 1.5 miles the trail hits a very steep pitch that borderlines Class 2 before moderating after a few hundred feet up. The trail then continues at a moderate clip all the way to the summit.

Essential Gear

In summer only hiking boots and essential hiking gear is needed. However in winter crampons and trekking poles are highly recommended for this hike.
