Description

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.
