Cherry Mountain Trail is a 3.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Twin Mountain, New Hampshire that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October.
Hiked during the winter- twice. Steep and unforgiving regardless of whether you go in via Owl's head trail or Mt. Martha trail. Be prepared to get wet if it's during the spring as the trails are very soggy on the Owl's head side. Nice views, nothing spectacular given the hard work. I would rate as a difficult trail, not moderate.
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.
