I am a regular on Monadnock hiking every week. Over the years I have also done much exploration and research of Grand Monadnock. If you have any questions about Mount Monadnock, trails, maps, history, this website, or current conditions just contact me.
Frederick Pitcher has wandered over Mount Monadnock more than 1500 times in the past 16 years. Fred has explored Mount Monadnock with the help of people who know the mountain and many different old maps. Fred has explored much of Mount Monadnock and also it's trail history with a library of information.
I did a lot of hiking on Mount Monadnock in 2011. I climbed Mount Monadnock 119 times in 2011. I hiked 830 miles on Mount Monadnock in 2011 which I kept track of on my GPS averaging 7.4 miles a hike for the year. I rarely hike straight up and straight down the mountain. I hiked seven double hikes. My longest hike this year was a 19 mile double and my shortest was 4.2 miles via the White Arrow Trail. The White Dot Trail which most people hike is just 1.85 miles to summit. I spent 3 weeks vacation largely hiking Monadnock. I have done a lot of hiking on Monadnock this year.
I also did a lot of hiking in 2012. I hiked the mountain 108 times I will have look over the numbers for that.
I was chatting with another hiker who said I ought to publish a book and share my knowledge of Monadnock. I thought about publishing a book when my brother inspired me to create a website on Monadnock. I may still publish a book on Mount Monadnock.
I also completed the original 111 High Peaks of the Northeast which stretches from Maine, NH, VT to New York and includes all the 48 4000 foot peaks of the White Mountains as well as the 46 High Peaks in the Adirondacks of New York.
There is a lot of fantastic hiking in the northeast; however, my favorite mountain peak is Grand Monadnock. There is so much to see on a hike of this isolated mountain in central New England. There are many ridges, cliffs and dells to wander on a day hike of Grand Monadnock.
