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.


About Author


Frederick Pitcher has wandered over Mount Monadnock more than 1550 times in the past 17 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 2013. I visited Monadnock State Park 103 times last year. I hiked Mount Monadnock 111 times doing several double hikes and one triple hike on a nice long spring day in May. I hiked 807 miles on Monadnock in 2013. In the past 3 years that I have kept track of my miles hiked with GPS. I have hiked 2,438 miles on Mount Monadnock in the last three years.  

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.
