The Hi-Cannon Trail

Route: Lonesome Lake Trail, Hi-Cannon Trail, Kinsman Ridge Trail, (Cannon Mountain), Kinsman Ridge Trail, roadwalk, Pemi Trail

While it was cloudy in the notch, a climb up the rough, overgrown Hi-Cannon Trail revealed a nice undercast.

The Kinsman Ridge Trail down to the Tram parking lot was treacherous in the wet conditions. The Pemi Trail was comparably pleasant.
