Description

This is a very nice trail. There are LOTS of blueberries when running out there in mid-August. The trailhead has parking for one vehicle (non-winter) but other parking exists nearby. The trail is located in the Zealand area of Twin Mountain, NH.

The trail is a loop and has arrows to direct you to go clockwise (this is more for the XC ski people). You initially go through an open field, and then the trail follows a stream for a while before beginning the return loop and gently ascending a ridge. There are two viewpoints with benches that have views of the Sugarloafs.

Flora & Fauna

Many blueberries in mid-Aug. Also saw some Baneberry (both red and white (dolls eyes)).
