Monadnock Mountain (Lemington, VT)

Monadnock Mountain rises steeply out of the Connecticut River Valley and provides unique views of the Northeast Kingdom from its summit fire tower.
Trail Activity
2.3 miles, One Way
Lemington (VT)
Packed Earth/Dirt, Rock/Ledge, Boardwalk/Bog Bridging, Grass/Meadow


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.
