Family Friendly This is a great quick hike to the top where there are scenic views and plenty of space for a picnic lunch.

Overview

Gap Mountain is a great little summit located in Troy and managed by Monadnock State Park. This a great trail for a quick hike with some steep portions especially toward the top, but the views of Mount Monadnock and the surrounding valley are worth the trip!

Description

This is a great smaller summit trail. The route is well-marked as it travels through the woods of Troy on the way to scaling Gap Mountain. From the summit, there are nice views of Mt. Monadnock and the surrounding valley. The last .35 miles of the trail gets a little steep with some rocks and built stairs. This is a great quick hike and a decent workout with rewarding summit views.

Flora & Fauna

Wild blueberries on summit make for great snack when in season.
