We did the Rattlesnake trail hike - well cleared trail and after a steep start evened out on top. 1.3 miles to the top - the view was ok as you could just see surrounding mountains. Not crowded on columbus day weekend.

Rumney mountain trail is close to Plymouth and the loop can be done in less then an hour if you keep moving. The views are fantastic and there is seldom more than one other hiker on the trail.
