Monadnock Mountain (Lemington, VT)
Parking can be found in the gravel pit parking area off of VT-102, just north of the Lemington-Colebrook Bridge. The trailhead is located at the back of the large gravel pit.
To get to the parking area from Lemington, drive north on VT-102 for 3.9 miles, then turn left into the large parking area.
This rugged trail varies in terrain from open meadow to steep rocky hill to logging road. After the trail follows a logging road for a time, then crosses a long log bridge, it begins a persistent, rocky climb that gains most of the elevation of the trail. The climb eventually levels out and the trail winds through a spruce-fir forest to the top. At the top, the foundation and chimney of a burned down fire warden's cabin still remain, as well as the fully functional fire tower, which offers excellent views of both Vermont and New Hampshire.

Leave No Trace Principle
Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
Stick to established trails and campsites. If there's no trail, try to walk on rock, gravel, or snow and spread out so that your group doesn't create a trail.
