With a few minutes to spare while in North Conway, I headed up to Jackson to Iron Mountain.

I was able to jog much of the Iron Mountain Trail, though I opted to walk the steep, eroded middle portion.

While there wasn't much to see from the summit, there were decent views from the viewpoints prior to it. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough time to head to the awesome southern ledges.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 16 North past the first covered bridge in Jackson. Almost immediately after, take a left onto Green Hill Road. Continue up this road, eventually bearing left onto a somewhat rough dirt Iron Mountain Road. There is a parking lot at the top of this road on the right hand side. Trailhead is just after, on the left.
