Gap Mountain is so-named for a prominent saddle or “gap” between its twin summits as seen from the west in Troy. The key attractions at Gap are the stunning vista of Mt. Monadnock looming just to the north and the summer high- and low-bush blueberry crops ringing the open ledges of the north summit. Volunteer land stewards from the Forest Society periodically maintain the openings along the upper reaches of the trail to help sustain the blueberries.
On this Forest Explorer Outing, track your progress and look for points of interest along the Andrew Brook Trail to Lake Solitude. Enjoy your hike!
