Following the Lonesome Lake Trail
from Lafayette Place Campground, the Hi-Cannon Trail is the most direct route up the east slope of Cannon Mountain. Known for its relentless grades, the trail climbs just under 2000 feet in a mile and a half. The first 0.75 miles of this trail contain many twists and turns through a densely wooded area.
After about 1 mile of climbing a winding, narrow, and wooded pathway, this trail turns sharply right to climb a wooden ladder up and over a small rocky cliff. The trail then climbs at a steep grade for another quarter mile before evening out at the junction with the Kinsman Ridge Trail
just 0.4 miles from the summit of Cannon Mountain.
Visit this area in the autumn to see the trees erupt in fiery fall color.
