NH - Meredith - Millstone Hill

  • Location: Meredith, NH
  • Owner: Private
  • Highlights: nice views of Lake Winnipesaukee; not nearly as good as Locke’s Hill but still nice; very buggy and a bit muddy (at least when I hiked it after three weeks of rain)
  • Directions (from Boston): 111 miles, 2 hours 1 minute
  • Park on the right side of the road by the “Mule Parking Only” sign.
  • The Trail:  about 2 miles, round trip 
    1. Follow the wide path that leaves from the parking spot, ignoring the random smattering of yellow blazes which do not appear to lead anywhere.   
    2. Follow the trail as it winds up and down before eventually climbing relatively steeply just before the summit.
    3. The trail emerges on a rocky summit with views above and through the nearby trees. 
    4. Another trail leaves the summit but I do not know where it goes.  There is also a faded no trespassing sign but, according to this geocache listing, the area is open to hiking.
    5. Return on the same trail you took up the hill.
  • There were no trail maps that I could find but the trail is easy to follow with no intersecting trails.
