Mt. Monadnock : Pumpelly trail

Hike the 4.5 mile Pumpelly Trail to the summit and back.
Meetup at the Pumpelly trail head on Lake Rd. in Dublin.

This hike is 9 miles round trip. The first mile weaves its way through hardwood forest slowly ascending the Pumpelly Ridge. About 1.5 miles in, the trail rises steeply, 400' in a 1/2 mile. the rest of the climb gradually winds its way up the Pumpelly ridge to the summit.
Expansive 360 degree views. Not a difficult hike, just very long. Hiking is mostly on exposed rock surface.

Hiking time 5-6 hours.

Easiest route is to take Rt. 124 towards Monadnock exit on Dublin Rd. ( Road Park entrance on Poole Rd. is located) pass the entrance drive to the end of Dublin Rd. bear left onto Rt. 101. immediately on your left will be Lake Rd. Continue on Lake Rd. about a mile, trail head is on your left. Parking is along lake Rd.

    I came up from n Mass for the hike. I arrived at 10:03, and the hike was posted for 10. I guess people had left already. I was surprised and disappointed.
