Overview

This hike will take us to the top of Mt. Pack Monadnock (2,288 ft.). We plan to take Wapack trail, 1.4 mi, up the mountain, and Marion Davis Trail, 1.4 mi, down (or the road, conditions - dependent). The trail may be covered with snow and possibly, ice. We will use light traction (microspikes) if necessary. We have some available, but participants are encouraged to use their own. The route is total of ~ 1000 ft of elevation gain. We will go at moderate pace, for ~ 3-3.5 h. The views of Mt. Monadnock and the valley are great. Trails map and more information can be found here: http://bit.ly/1D53yCL, http://bit.ly/1wztLo0, and http://bit.ly/1tm1tCo. Register with Rick Gershberg, rgershberg@verizon.net, 617-694-1060.
