Trails at the Cathedral of the Pines

The Cathedral of the Pines is home to a number of trails that vary in both experience and difficulty. The paths that depart from behind the cathedral are wide, level, and ADA accessible. These trails tour the facilities and monuments and offer stunning views of Mount Monadnock.

The western trail system offers visitors well-established wooded trails that wind past picnic areas and offer views of Grassy Pond.

The eastern trail system departs from the trailhead kiosk and crosses Hale Hill Road and Cathedral Road. The trail is marked with blue diamonds and because the trail is relatively new it is not well worn in; however, it is easy to follow because there are a number of markers. The eastern trail system winds through the wood, fields of ferns, and along Emerson Pond. Cut outs from the main loop offer users the chance for a medium to a long walk through the woods.
