There's a logging operation going on in and around the Crider Forest and the Shelter at Crider near Center Pond in Stoddard.
The shelter is open for overnight camping-
Attention Greenway Hikers as of June 2016
There is a logging operation going on this summer on Jefts Road, with heavy equipment/trucks travelling in both directions. You might want to hike the alternate route (bypass route blazed in blue) for a more pleasant experience. Also because of this logging operation, the “high water” situation at the Barney Brook Bridge is no longer an issue.
Note- The alternate bypass loop (blazed in blue) is about 0.2 miles longer than the white-blazed Greenway Trail and has several steeper sections. This route will take you a bit longer but includes more woods trail instead of Class 6 dirt road.
Attention to folks who have purchased the SUPERMAP
We made a typo on our new SUPERMAP, damn, nothing is perfect!!!
The phone number for the Washington General Store listed on the SUPERMAP is not correct. Unless you purchased a hand corrected copy. The number should be 603-495-3131. Please make a note of this.
Note: the following changes are walking Northbound from Mt. Monadnock to Mt. Sunapee to follow the mileage chart in the Trail Guide Sixth Edition only.
Important: As of July 2015 the Seventh Edition of the Trail Guide is still current. These changes are reflected in this edition.
There has been a major trail relocation on the lower section of the Dublin trail (marked with white reflectors) on Mt. Monadnock. With this change, the .04 mile road walk section on the Old Troy Road has been eliminated. The Greenway Trail now connects to the new Dublin Trail just behind the kiosk at the new Dublin Trail head parking area and runs north and west connecting with the existing trail ¼ mile north of Old Troy Road. This relocation is painted white.
The trail formerly connected with the new Dublin Trail at Old Troy Road and followed Old Troy Road ¼ mile west then turned north towards Old Marlborough Road. This trail remains open and is painted blue as an alternative route until the books and maps are updated.
This relocation is very obvious.
6.3 miles north of Mt. Monadnock, the Spiltoir site tent platform is now a three-sided shelter (completed Summer 2006).
25.3 miles north of Mount Monadnock, the Fox Brook Campsite now has a tent platform (built in the fall of 2007).
26.7 miles north of Mt. Monadnock or North of Jackson Hill in Stoddard, near the beaver pond, there an option of either staying on the original Greenway or taking a trail relocation. Staying on the Greenway (blazed in white) you may encounter some trail flooding at the Barney Brook snowmobile bridge area. Following the trail relocation trail (blazed in blue), initially it’s wet, but then climbs to higher ground. This relocation is highlighted on the latest version of the Trail map. Happy Trails either way you choose.
37.3 miles north of Mt. Monadnock is the Max Israel Shelter. Completed in September 2009.
43.1 miles north of Mount Monadnock is the Steve Galpin Shelter at Moose Lookout.
