About the Property

*NOTE: Advance registration is highly recommended prior to visiting Monadnock State Park. Visit the NH State Parks website for more information & parking day pass reservations. *

Mount Monadnock is one of the most-climbed mountains in the western hemisphere. In 1915 the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests conserved its first tract of 406 acres on Mount Monadnock, beginning a long-term effort to protect the natural integrity of the mountain and its surroundings. Since then, the Forest Society has acquired over 5,000 acres at Mount Monadnock and Gap Mountain in the towns of Dublin, Marlborough, Troy, and Jaffrey. The Forest Society leases much of this land to the State to be operated as Monadnock State Park.

Detailed maps of the mountain’s trails can be found at the Monadnock State Park website.
