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!

PROS:
  • 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).
  • Open year-round.
CONS:
  • Very crowded, especially on weekends.
  • Entrance fee is $3 per person (hey, that's like an entire meal).

It's nice to see a review of a trail on the East Coast. @Friedpez does a great job reviewing trails on the West coast (like this one), so between you and him, we're covered. I like the way you break down your trail review. Very informative!
