New Hampshire Wander: Wantastiquet State Forest

Last Sunday I drove through four states to get to Wantastiquet Mountain State Forest to hike Mt. Wantastiquet.  Wantastiquet is just over the the Vermont border in Hinsdale NH, across the Connecticut River from Brattleboro VT.  Mitch, a Brattleboro native, suggested the hike.

The 2 hour hike was a moderate pitch up to the 1335 peak.  The reward was the outlook from Mine Ledge offering an unobstructive view of Brattleboro, the Connecticut River and beyond.  We could see Mt. Snow and Bromley in the distance.  We debated if one of the distant peaks was the back side of Killington.

Trail head off Rte 119 between the Bridge and the Walmart Entrance
