Ellen Kolb on MT. Monadnock NH

Ellen Kolb, AKA Granite State Walker.

I’m Ellen Kolb, and I walk and blog throughout the most beautiful state in New England. Off the trails, I’m a freelance writer and researcher. I took all photos in Granite State Walker except for those otherwise attributed. 

Welcome to southern New Hampshire. Whether you’re looking for a quick walk on your lunch break or an all-day mountain hike, it’s all here. State parks? Try Monadnock, Miller (Pack Monadnock), Pawtuckaway, or Winslow – and those are just the ones with serious hills.  City parks? You can’t beat Nashua’s Mine Falls. Rail trails? For an urban one, try Manchester’s trail along the Piscataquog River, with a distinctive pedestrian bridge over the Merrimack River. Farther away from cities, you’ll find trails in Windham and New Boston and Auburn and too many other towns to list. Get out there and enjoy.
