A state park with hiking trails on a mountain in southern New Hampshire

I have hiked the White Dot trail on Mount Monadnock, for an occasional hiker like me it was quite a challenge (plus I have anemia, strenuous exercise makes me faint). It was a very steep hike that I don't think one can do without a couple of bottles of water. Hiking down without tumbling is a great accomplishment!
Amazing views as far as Boston on a clear day.
Open rocky summit.
A variety of trails and ways to get to the top.
Bring you stainless steel reusable water bottle and fill with Mount Monadnock spring water at the source (bottom of the mountain).
You can see Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts from the summit.
Bring binoculars and you can spy on some rich guy's estate at the foot of the mountain from the summit.
You might get to meet the ridiculously tan guy who is there nearly every day in the summer hiking the mountain back and forth several times a day with his shirt off (no, it is not the estate owner).
Very crowded, especially on weekends.
Entrance fee is $3 per person (hey, that's like an entire meal).
