Trail Conditions

NOTE: POTENTIAL TRAIL CLOSURE - There is currently logging occuring between the NH-MA border and Monument Rd, which may result in a temporary trail closure summer of 2023. If you encounter trail closure signs, please follow the reroute markers to avoid the logging operation. May 2nd, 2023.

NOTE: TRAIL CLOSURE - The logging operation next to the South Parking lot of the Gap Mountain area has been completed and the southern section of trail on Gap Mountain is now open for hiking. Some minor obstacles may still be found and some blazes have been removed due to logging, please proceed with caution while clean-up is in progress. The South Parking lot remains closed but you may park along the road and hike in.


Due to restrictions related to the COVID-19 virus, maintenance of the trail may be spotty. Thus you should expect to see uncleared blowdowns.

The side trail to the top of Little Monadnock from Rhododendron State Park is in poor condition. (See that Trail Description.)

We also note particular problems with the trail following the descriptions of the individual sections.

We always appreciate your feedback, so If you see a problem while on your hike, please report it here.
