Wapack Trail to Pack Monadnock summit

Pack Monadnock is basically a mini-Mt. Monadnock - not as much vertical and not quite as many people (though still, very busy). The fire tower offers views in all directions. There is a fee to park or drive into Miller State Forest - free parking is located across the street at the old Temple Mountain ski area.
