A fun, short jaunt to the top of Cox Pinnacle.
Cox Pinnacle is a wooded trail system, approximately a mile and a quarter, which summits Brunswick’s highest point, a little ledge (with a view of Mt. Washington on a very clear day) 350 feet above sea level. These trails provide roughly 1¼ miles of trail recreation in all seasons, including hiking, cross-country skiing, dog walking and snowshoeing.
The trailhead is located on Hacker Road, 3/10 mile east of Durham Road.
There are very easy-to follow trail markings: blue wooden pieces nailed to the trees. There are several trails that all lead up to the pinnacle, where someone has erected a small stone pyramid (pile of rocks).
The most direct route to Cox Pinnacle is the Durham Road. Turn right at Hacker Road (blinking light) and go 0.3 mile to the parking lot on the left. The trail begins with a boardwalk across the wetlands and is marked in blue. An alternate route is River Road. Turn left onto Hacker Road and continue to the parking lot on the right hand side.
