Miller State Park – Peterborough, New Hampshire

The 533-acre Miller State Park in Peterborough was established in 1891 when 3 acres atop Pack Monadnock were donated to New Hampshire. The name Pack comes from an Indian word meaning “little” and is used in comparison to nearby Mount Monadnock. Pack Monadnock has a paved auto road to the top and is the former site of two hotels. It has a renovated fire tower at the summit which is staffed seasonally.
