Check out Madison Boulder! It is one of largest glacial erratics in North America. It is a short hike in, well worth the trip.

It's a quick side trip only 5 miles from the east end of the Kancamagus Highway and worth the time. Basically it's just a really, really big rock. We were able to drive to within a hundred yards of it, but the road was pretty...More
