Mount Monadnock

Mount Monadnock is the most prominent New England mountain peak south of the White Mountains and east of the Massachusetts Berkshires. It has long been known as one of the most frequently climbed mountains in the world. Mount Monadnock is nearly 1,000 feet higher than any mountain peak within 30 miles and rises 2,000 feet above the surrounding landscape. The term "monadnock" has come to be used by American geologists to describe any isolated mountain formed from the exposure of a harder rock as a result of the erosion of a softer rock that once surrounded it. Monadnock's bare, isolated, and rocky summit provides expansive views. A number of hiking trails ascend the mountain, including the 110-mile Metacomet-Monadnock Trail and the 50-mile Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway.
