Description:


Cannon Mountain is a 4,080 ft. mountain located in Franconia Notch, offering stunning views of Franconia Notch at the summit including Mount Lafayette and Franconia Ridge. We will be hiking up to the summit via the Hi-Cannon and descending via the Lonesome Lake trail, totaling 5.5 miles with the loop around the lake, which also offers great views of the Cannonballs of Cannon Mountain and Franconia Ridge.
