Ascent to North twin is moderately steep and challenging cardio wise if going at a good pace. View at south twin makes hike worth it.

I would rate this moderate, not easy. I found Franconia loop easier

We entered the Pemigewasset loop by going up the twins. A fun hike and not terribly challenging but a steady up to North Twin summit via North Twin trail. We went when it was slightly drizzling so no views. But still very cool to be surrounded by all the fog. Galehead provided no views at the summit but did have an outlook only to be yet again blocked by fog. Definitely going to hike again, hopefully when the weather is clear :)
