The Monadnock Region – A Driving Tour

Mount Monadnock is the heart of the Monadnock Region. This drive will take you through all of the towns which make up the area. The drive can be done in one day, but you should plan for at least 3 days, as you will want to stop along the way to explore. I designed the 230 mile route so you can start and end in the same town.

Map and driving directions. Click the 2nd icon (looks like a list) to see the driving directions. You can print the route or download it for use with your Garmin or Google Earth.

I went back into some of my older posts and chose an image from each town to give you an idea what you may see…

    I wonder if you can see the mountain from all of those towns. I’ve never heard of a view from Gilsum or Deering, or a few others, but it would be interesting to find out. I got shots of Monadnock from about 12 towns last year and it took a long time to do!

      I’m not sure if you can see Mt Monadnock from every town but all of those towns are within a 12 mile radius from the mountain

        Great article! I’d love to see one about the history of old NH roads such as King’s Highway through Hancock, Stoddard and Washington or the Second or Fourth NH Turnpikes and the impact, good and bad, the turnpikes had on local farms.

        I can look into that for a future post. Thank you for your input.

    What a fabulous photo tour! I jumped back when I got to the giant mammoth statue. Wow! Now there is something you don’t see every day. 🙂

      Alstead is full of giant metal sculptures. Many are quite beautiful.

    Doesn’t work, I don’t get any instructions either in Firefox or IE.

    • Touring NH May 13, 2015 at 9:14 pm #

      I’m not sure what you mean by instruction. I use Firefox, does the map load? The directions are the second link on the right. If you still have problems, please let me know.

    I know I am back for a second time but just had another look through these gorgeous photos. I love the sheep and baby lamb and also the covered bridge. It puzzles me why we wouldn’t have covered bridges in Western Canada where it woulds seems so practical.

      Thank you Sue! We have an abundance of covered bridges in NH, I’ve been photographing them by county. I have quite a collection now. Covered bridges can be found all over the world, you are right, it does seem strange not to have any in western Canada.

I'd love to know what you think!
