The Pumpelly Trail at Monadnock State Park in Dublin, New Hampshire is the longest route to the summit of Mt Monadnock at 8 miles out-and-back. It's also considered to be an easier hike up because the elevation gain is stretched out compared to some of the other routes to the summit.

The trail starts off easing through beautiful pines with old stone walls to the sides of the trail. After roughly 1 mile, the trail truly begins its upward climb with the first real ridge being as step as the southern routes. After the first big ridge, next is a smaller ridge that climbs upward in spurts with steep ups and downs over rock faces, but each peak provides views. The last leg of the trail eases up to the summit allowing hikers to choose their own path.

Note: This trail is well worn but not very popular and there are no trail markers, the closer you get to the summit there are rock piles (cairns) you can follow - these seem to be the only real trail markers. Also note that this recording is 8 miles and the trail head sign says 4.5 miles to the summit.

Pets/dogs: are not permitted in Monadnock State Park.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
