About this trip

Join Laura Loewy & Jen Wyatt as we journey to New Hampshire to hike Mt. Monadnock - with a claim to fame of the most climbed mountain in the world! We'll meet and park at the Monadnock State Park Headquarters before embarking on our day-long adventure. 


We'll make our way up the White Dot trail, the steepest and most direct route to the summit, where you can enjoy your packed lunch at 3,165 feet. Monadnock is a moderately strenuous and very rocky hike of 3.9 miles round-trip, and has incredible views that make it all worth it (on a very clear day, you can see Boston!). We'll practice gentle and rejuvenating yoga at the start of our descent, and continue back to Headquarters on the White Cross trail.

** Saturday Night ( Sunday @ 4am) will be the full moon! You will have the option to add on camping w/ an additional Full Moon Yoga Ceremony!! (We have reserved two campsites at the Monadnock Campground) This is an informal part of our adventure. Camping equipment is NOT included. However we are happy to help you ease into camping if this will be your first time! Please don't hesitate to ask questions!**

The hike was challenging but absolutely worth the gorgeous views. The instructors were kind and understanding. A storm rolled in very quickly once we hit the summit. We all rushed down to escape it and had to skip the yoga on the mountain. While I completely understand that there is no way to control the weather I am disappointed in the company for not refunding us some of the money or reaching out to let us go on another trip for free or discounted. $70 was a lot to pay for a hike my friend and I could have done on our own for $5 each to park. I will not be joining this company again for any hiking/yoga experience because I feel like they do not value or respect their customers. Very sad about this trip.

What a great day ! Jen and Lauren were the best ! You won't go wrong if you head out with them.
We had an awesome time! Laura and Joel were fantastic guides. I'm new to hiking, but the pace and structure of the trip was perfect! Thanks again! Krissy

Laura and Joel were wonderful trip-leaders. The accommodations at the hut were nice, and the hikes were challenging with beautiful views. I would recommend a Backcountry Yoga trip to anyone.
