Monadnock Mountain

Lemington, VT

[ Get Directions ]

In the Town of Lemington, Monadnock Mountain rises steeply above the Connecticut River and provides a unique view of the North Country from its summit fire tower. This rugged trail begins moderately through a small meadow and continues into a young forest following a scenic brook and rocky ledge. It climbs steeply, crosses the brook and reaches a logging road which it follows until it crosses back over the brook on a long log bridge. From here, the trail begins its persistent climb upward over rocky footing. At the summit all that remain of the burned fire warden's cabin is the chimney and foundation but the fire tower is still functional and provides excellent views off the Connecticut River and Valley as well as of northern Vermont and New Hampshire.
