Trail Conditions

NOTE: TRAIL CLOSURE - The logging operation next to the South Parking lot of the Gap Mountain area continues to progress and will now continue through the winter of 2021. During that time a portion of this section of the Trail on Gap Mt. will be closed. However, access to Gap Mt. from the North Parking Lot is still possible. However, we strongly advise NO day hiking on Gap Mt. as the current heavy use of this mountain makes social distancing difficult, particularly at the summit. For thru-hikers, directions for bypassing the trail closure can be found here.


Due to restrictions related to the COVID-19 virus, maintenance of the trail may be spotty. Thus you should expect to see uncleared blowdowns.

The side trail to the top of Little Monadnock from Rhododendron State Park is in poor condition. (See that Trail Description.)

We also note particular problems with the trail following the descriptions of the individual sections.

We always appreciate your feedback, so If you see a problem while on your hike, please report it here.
