Cardigan State Park spans 5,655 acres and is an excellent area in New Hampshire
for hiking. A mountain road leads to trails on the western slope of Mount Cardigan as well as
a trail to the summit. Here, Mount Cardigan's 3,121-foot treeless granite summit affords
outstanding views of west central N.H., with a spectacular view that includes Mt. Monadnock and the
White Mountains, Camel's Hump in Vermont, and Pleasant Mountain in Maine.
Cardigan State Park also
includes picnic tables at a great spot for picnicking.
Note: Cardigan State Park is unstaffed but is open to the public year-round at no charge.
