Mt. Twins are in the northern portion of the Pemigewasset Wilderness. South Twin ( 4902 ft.) is the highest peak of Twin Range and the 8th highest mountain in New Hampshire. South Twin and North Twin (4761 ft.) provide a panoramic view of the Pemi loop, the nearby Franconia Range to the west and southwest, and the Presidential Range off to the northeast. The view also includes the entire Pemigewassett Wilderness and the Sandwich Range beyond it. This is a traverse of South Twin and North Twin and it requires car spotting. At a moderate pace, we will hike approximately 7 hours and gain 3,300 elevation gain.
