Description

Glacial Park as we've come to call it is really an extension of the main cliff band on Cone Mountain. It is however separated by a bit of forest. As well the climbing here is nothing like over on the main cliff where glacial plucking left it jagged and fractured. Here the rock is polished and striated with killer cracks and corners on fine schist with generally good gear with a good density of good climbing. A nice place to spend a secluded day in the woods. From the top there are wonderful views from the Sandwich Range to the Franconia ridge and not the sight or sound of a single road.

Getting There

Listed below is likely one of the longer approaches, but it uses national forest parking as and trails. If you don't mind parking on the side of the road a less creative approach will take less the 15 minutes.

Follow the Brown Ash Swamp Trail out about 3/4 a mile to a beaver pond. Turn left just before the pond and cross the stream at a game trail (it should be obvious) head rightward up the hill looking for a primitive trail marked with a strips of pink tie die fabric. This should take you to a small boulder field. Go left uphill slightly from here and it should be pretty easy to follow the land and cairns to a small notch and then The Mill Stone, a trail on the right leads to Glacial Park.
