Ascent Trip Report

On the last weekend of Ski Haus 2011 we hiked Cannon Mountain from the Lafayette Campground. Up the Lonesome Lake Trail to the Hi Cannon Trail then down the Kinsman Ridge Trail to the base of the tram. The weather was warm, humid and clear. The views from the top were a bit hazy and the summit was crowded with people who took the tram to the summit for the views. After reaching the tram base we walked back along the bike path through Franconia Notch.
