Hiking Northbound from Mt. Monadnock, the Spiltoir Shelter was built in the summer of 2006 by the MSGTC, this was originally a tent platform for years. We are thankful that Tom Spiltoir and his family allow us to the have this shelter on their land. This shelter is 6.3 miles from the top of Mt. Monadnock.
Crider Forest Shelter
12.1 miles North of the Splitoir Shelter is the Crider Forest Shelter. Built in the fall of 1998 by the MSGTC, this shelter is on SPNHF land. Many of the materials for this shelter were donated by Carlisle Lumber in Stoddard NH.
Fox Brook Tent Platform
6.8 miles North of the Crider Forest Shelter is our last primitive campsite and tent platform (tent required). The Fox Brook tent platform was built by the MSGTC in 2007 (your membership dollars at work). In the middle of the Andorra Forest, this site is remote.
General Washington Shelter

Built on July 23, 1983 by The AMC NH Trail Crew and hosted by Phil Barker and family on their land. Hikers like staying here and walking into Washington Center at night to buy some ice cream at the only store in town. Note, water is available at Phil Barker’s house.
