There are so many great hiking trails in Southern New Hampshire and we keep a file with hiking books and trail maps. However, our goal is to hike all of them ourselves so we can share our own experiences with our guests and make good suggestions.
Just before July 4th weekend, we had an opportunity with a friend to climb to the top of North Pack (just ten minutes drive from Little River Bed and Breakfast). We had climbed North Pack before but instead of starting at the Wapack trail head, we drove about a mile farther down the road to lesser known trailhead for Ted's Trail and Carolyn's Trail. Ted's trail is usually an outstandingly scenic trail (if that's even a word) that follows a brook, crosses in front of waterfalls, and brings you to the Cliff Trail near the top of Pack Monadnock.
One of the benefits of this hike is that it is definitely the road...trail...less traveled. Although there were a handful of cars at the Wapack trailhead, we were the only people on Ted's Trail. If you are looking for a great hike with solitude, Ted's Trail will not disappoint.
