Access Trail from Rhododendron State Park Parking Lot

The top of Little Monadnock and the NHMM Trail are easily reached from Rhododendron State Park. It is a hike of about 1.2 miles from the Park entrance and a climb of 700 feet in elevation.

To reach top of Little Monadnock and the NHMM Trail, enter the Park between the two stone pillars at the edge of the parking lot. Go straight ahead on a well graded trail for about two tenths of a mile to a trail junction with a sign indicating the trail to Little Monadnock. Bear right at this sign and follow the orange plastic blazes on the trees. There are also occasional long white blazes that also indicate the trail. The Trail shortly begins to climb through old fields now overgrown with forest. The trail is steep at times but easily traveled except for one short scramble over a rocky ledge.
