    Anyone want to carpool from Fitchburg/Gardner? I'd be happy to drive or ride.

    The starting time is set so early because by 9 all the parking spots will be gone. Anyone who has hike from this trail head knows this.
    We hiked after a major snow storm here and started at 8:30 and almost all the spots were gone. So 8 am is reasonable considering parking and the fact that its a 9 mile hike and will take 4.5 hours minimum to hike this. For many it will turn into 6 hours.
    I live 45 minutes away and 8 is not a problem for me and no one else has an issue with the starting time.

    Well, it seems my post I thought I just sent didn't go through.

    What I said, essentially, is, "Why so EARLY a start time!" I live 1.5 hows away and getting up at 4:30 or even 5:00 AM for a hike on a Saturday is just not appealing to me! SO I hope you( leaders) will consider a more reasonable start time in the future! ThankS!

    So, I'd be interested in this hike - it's been a few years since I've climbed Monadnock! BUT - 8:00 AM - reallY??!! I can't see why it would be necessary to start out that early. Getting up at 4:30 on a Saturday to hike just ain't appealing to me. I hope in the future you;ll consider a later start time - thanks!

    It takes about 30 minutes from Walmart to the trail head. Linda wants to leave the walmart parking area at 7:15 that would get us to the trailhead at 7:45. I drive a bright blue Rio Kia. When you enter the parking lot lets park in left corner - not many use the area there and it is visible to all coming in. See you there.

    This will require discipline but I will get there.
