Cherry Mountain Trail is a 3.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Twin Mountain, NH that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until October.
Hiked from the south up the Cherry Mountain Trail on Sept. 7 and then across Martha's Mile to Owl's Head. Not much for views due to low clouds and the trail itself is a bit boring, straight and steady climb till you get to the ridge. Martha's Mile is a beautiful walk across a col with a couple of very challenging ledge scrambles to reach the views on Owl's Head (fabulous views when clear!) Climbed later from the North up the Owl's Head Trail and this was interesting and challenging, not much elevation gain in the first mile and then almost all of the 2000 feet of elevation gain in the last 1.3 miles. Nice hike through varied forest. Views and foliage were superb on October 11. Highly recommend climbing from the north and do not miss the chance to walk Martha's Mile. Nice views of mountains to the south from Crawford notch through Franconia Ridge and Canon.
