View Full Version : Monadnock Region/Blue Hills

Hey Folks,

I'm just outside of Boston and am looking for a nice hike that's close. Can you recommend anything semi-close (south of the Whites)? I assume that leaves me with Blue Hills (anything nice that you know of here?) and the Monadnock region, but I'm not entirely sure. As I've done Monadnock already, do you know of anything close to it in elevation/difficulty that's around the same distance from here?

Thanks in advance!

Blue Job Mountain in Rochester/Farmington is a great LITTLE peak in the seacoast region, as are the mountains of Pawtuckaway State Park. Not a very far drive from boston at all. Beyond that, in the Lakes Region, the Belknap Range, and specifically Mount Major offer some options.

Over in Maine, York hosts Mount Agamenticus, a nice little hike as well...

Thanks, Jim. Doing Blue Job next week most likely.
