**IMPORTANT NOTICE 4/15/2021: The timber harvesting activity in the vicinity of the Gap Mountain “South Trail” in Troy has been completed. The South Trail parking area remains closed due to wet spring conditions, but will reopen once the ground has dried adequately. Very limited roadside parking is available at this location but the trail is open for use at this time.
The North Trail parking area on Bullard Road in Jaffrey is open for the 2021 season.
The 50 mile Wantastiquet-Monadnock Hiking Trail (WMT) can now be hiked over its whole length from Brattleboro to Mt. Monadnock. Well-known public lands along the trail include the Mt. Wantastiquet, Bear Mt., Pisgah and Mt. Monadnock State Parks, the Horatio Colony Preserve, the Cheshire Rail Trail, and the Forest Society's Gap Mountain and Monadnock Reservations and Madame Sherri Forest.
The WMT is the culmination of 25 years of planning, negotiations and trail building begun by members of the Chesterfield Conservation Commission and the park staff and Friends of Pisgah Park. The Wantastiquiet-Monadnock Trail Coalition, the enlarged group now overseeing the trail, includes the Forest Society, the State of New Hampshire, the Troy, Hinsdale and Winchester Conservation Commissions, the Swanzey Rail Trail Advisory Committee, Antioch New England, Colony Memorial Trust, Keene Parks and Rec, the Monadnock Conservancy, Pathways for Keene and the Southwest Regional Planning Commission.
