Pumpelly Trail begins north of the park near Dublin Lake on private land and terminates at Mt. Monadnock located in the state park. This trail is respected for its repeated elevation gains and losses and occasional treks above the timber line. It is an interesting hike not only due to the constant change in elevation but the continual change in forest type and the age of the forest. You'll travel from mixed hardwood into lush cool conifers and then into a forest stand thick with white birch. You'll encounter several areas above the timber line which are slender passages marked with cairns. When you are within sight of Mt. Monadnock Summit's you'll be able to see Pack Monadnock, Crotched Mountain, the Uncanoonucs, tiny New England villages, and a smattering of lakes and ponds. You may even be able to see Dublin Lake, which was your trailhead.
Directions: From Dublin, NH, From Dublin Lake's east end follow Lake Road south about .5 mile to reach the trailhead.
