“Neat”
Review of Madison Boulder

Reviewed 27 June 2017 via mobile

This is an interesting side stop if you're in the area. A giant boulder moved by a glacier sitting in the middle of the woods. It's fairly impressive when you get up to it.

This was not that well sign-posted but worth the perseverance to find it - no particular signs from the very small car-park, so you head off in the only real direction available in the hope you are right. Five to ten minutes walk you come to the boulder. There is a small explanation board, which is helpful, just a shame not more is made of this natural attraction.

Was slightly off our destination which was Mt. Washington but it is right of Rt.113. It is a short walk in from the parking and is amazing. It is the Ayers Rock of NH. It is a one very big boulder to say the least, not to be missed. It was brought to Madison by a Glacier. The history alone is worth it. Far less people here then on Mt. Washington.

Stopped here on our way to Mt Washington. It's a little bit out of the way, but that also means there aren't a lot of people there. Short walk to and around the boulder. Great info signs. Fun to say we've seen it!

In Madison NH there is a really large boulder-- it's really to big to say its a boulder, except it is. It is the largest boulder formed from a glacier anywhere in North America. The walk from the parking lot takes about 15 minutes, walking slowly, but you feel as though you are in the depths of the forest. If you are looking for a nature experience, but have difficulty with walking long distances, this is it for you. It is probably accessible to those with mobility impairments, or those who use wheelchairs as well....
