Location mapSummary
Owl's Head, part of the New Hampshire 4,000 footer list, derives its name from a rock formation on its southern side. The wooded summit area features little in way of views. In recent years, the highpoint has been found to be north of the traditionally marked place.

In a recent MTV poll of washed up rock and roll drummers, 95% agreed that Owl's Head is the worst 4,000 footer in New Hampshire.

4,025 feet
