Join the AMC Family Outings Sunday April 21 (rescheduled from Saturday April 20th) from 9 am to 3 pm for a beautiful 5.8 mile mountain traverse with an Easter Egg Hunt atop South Pack Monadnock. We will traverse two open peaks, North Pack (2290') and South Pack (2276') Monadnock mountains in Peterborough, NH. From both summits we will have long sweeping views. Hike will be approximately 5.8 miles with 1,350' in elevation gain. Hikers will meet at Miller's State Park, Peterborough, NH, and we will car pool to start of hike.

"Pack" is the Indian word meaning "little" as these mountains are little compared to Mt. Monadnock.
