Description

Glen Boulder is a glacial erratic that is perched on the mountainside above Pinkham Notch. To get to the boulder, hike up the Glen Boulder trail from the Glen Ellis Scenic Area parking lot. The trail climbs steeply to a relatively low elevation treeline. Once above treeline, the views are spectacular. The boulder is 1.6 miles from the parking lot. The Glen Boulder trail continues another 1.6 miles past the boulder to the Davis Path.

Trail Tips

Plan Ahead and Prepare
Know your limits – it’s okay to turn back. Your home is the ultimate destination, not the summit.
