Hike Mount Monadnock!

Join is for a day hike up Mount Monadnock in Jaffrey NH.
The typical route is the white dot trail, which can take 2-3 hours depending on the group. We can then relax and have lunch at the top before descending.
Please be aware this is not a casual hike, but roughly two miles of upward climbing among large rocks. It's a beautiful hike, but is a major workout for us city folks.
Please bring plenty of water, snacks, and layers of clothing. The hike up will feel warm, but the top is often windy and cold, and I'd like everyone to be prepared.
I've been to the mountain many times over the last 25 years so reach out with any questions.
Looking forward to seeing some of you!
I plan to meet at the visitors center at 10am and am open to carpooling from central MA.
My cell is[masked]-5640.

      Which way are you coming?
      I think I'm arranging a carpool going up 190 from Auburn/west Boylston

    Hi , I would like to ride up - West Boylston is off 190 - are you then planning on Route 140? I have your cell and i believe you have mine?

      That could work. West Boylston is along the way.
      I'll text you tomorrow once we confirm weather looks fair.

    Looks like we may have an afternoon shower, but will hopefully be back by then.
    I'm leaving Auburn at 8:30 and plan to head up 190N.
    Let me know if you want to ride up.

      Hi Jay. For a good hiking experience you'll need good shoes, a good water supply, and maybe some food if your out a very long time. Spring and summer require good bug spray also. Hope to see you on the trail.

      Too funny. I've put on 10-15 pounds since my last trip. I'll be hurting.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
