  • Jul 27, 2013 · 8:30 AM

Let's hike Cannon and the Kinsmans! We will begin on Lonesome Lake trail and the the High Cannon Trail. Once we summit Cannon we will trek along the Kinsman Ridge Trail and hit North and South Kinsman. Will come down Fishing Jimmy to Lonesome Lake Hut and then down Lonesome Lake trail. We wil travel 12.46 miles, book time is 8 hours 46 minutes. Elevation gain: 5097.

 

We start as a group, hike as a group, and finish as a group. Our pace will be that of the slowest hiker. This trip isn't for you if you are faster than the group and don't want to stay with us, if you want to head off on your own, or if you are slower than the group and expect us to constantly wait for you.

Guests are not permitted - all participants must be members of the Random Group of Hikers.
