If you are in the area this is an interesting sight to see for a quick side trip or a place to get out and stretch your legs. A HUGE boulder in the middle of the woods is not something you see everyday. It's a...More

A short walk from the parking area will lead you to something you've never seen before and something that clearly looks out of place with its surroundings. Gives you a great perspective of where you stand with mother nature if you read the info on...More

The Madison Boulder is a great little side trip to check out. From the parking area it is approximately a 5 minute easy walk. There is a small information board present that explains how, what and when the boulder came to be. Great little piece...More

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.

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...More

A tiny bit off Rt.113, in Madison, N.H. sits a HUGE boulder. Quite honestly, other than it's size, and the history that surrounds it, it is not a "destination" site! If passing through the area, it is worth a stop. There are no other facilities...More
