Community Event: Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway Centennial

Presented by the Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway Trail Club

The Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway is a hiking trail that links Grand Monadnock with Mount Sunapee in southwestern New Hampshire. It is nearly 50 miles in length, winding along the Monadnock Highlands that divide the Connecticut and Merrimack River drainages.
The original Monadnock-Sunapee Trail was laid out in 1921 by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, New Hampshire's oldest and largest conservation organization. The trail runs through three NH state parks, and now over 80 private land owners voluntairily agree to host the trail, and in some cases, campsites on their land.
