Join us on a 6.2 mile hike to Cannon Mountain (4,100ft), one of the 48 NH 4,000ft peaks. If the weather is clear we can expect great views across the Franconia Range. Participants should expect to hike at a moderate pace with an elevation gain of 2,400 ft and some limited above tree line exposure near the summit. The summit can be cold and windy. Our route will take us by Lonesome Lake, which affords fine views of North and South Kinsman on a clear day. Full Winter gear, including microspikes and snowshoes, is required. Poles are recommended.
Joe is one of the Boston Chapter's most experienced and active trip leaders - his summit visits number in the quadruple digits. Included among the many outings he leads each year for the Chapter's Hiking/Backpacking Committee are the single-day Presidential Range traverse on the summer solstice, and the Map & Compass course in the fall.
