Our hiking group hiked Middle Mountain Trail, starting with South Mountain Trail (not found in the list of trails) which started at a trail-head off Reservation Road. A short distance from the trail-head, the trail splits into trail vs road hiking. We took the trail, designated by "To Park Headquarters". Both would have gotten us to the same place but we wanted the more scenic route. The trail still had spots of ice and snow but we navigated around them rather than use micro spikes since there was so little and the ground was still frozen (rather than the usual spring "mud season" in NH). It was a cold day with strong winds so the summits were pretty brutal for our short break and lunch. The hike took a fairly leisurely 4 hours, including lunch and breaks. The view from South Mountain was great. Not so much for Middle Mountain, although Middle Mountain was also very pleasant, with wider trails.
All in all, it was a great day - being on a trail showing signs of spring despite the extreme cold.
We have previously done North Mountain, a more difficult hike, (not DIFFICULT) which could be added to the above to extend the hike.
