My wife and I have a trip planned in mid October to hike up Mt Monadnock. I attended FPC (which I see is now FPU) in the early 80's. When I was 19 I practically ran up that mountain. Now at 47, I hope to just make it to the top while maintaining my dignity.
Along with Monadnock, I wanted to take her to Cathedral of the Pines and show her FPC. Can you just drive on campus or is there a security gate now?
I've been researching hiking up Monadnock on various websites but any other info from a local on the hike would be appreciated. We both jog and stay in pretty good shape, but we're not 19 anymore.
Any other suggestions for our 2 days in southern NH would be appreciated. We're staying at a B&B in Jaffrey. Are there any brew pubs in Peterborough? It's been 26 years since I've been in the area and I'm really looking forward to our visit.
