Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Sign at bottom of Mittersill-Cannon Tr.. Nicely blazed throughout on poles or rocks with well placed markings at any intersections of ski trails-workroads etc.. Upper end of trail starts at end of Tramway/Summit cafeteria building and still had signage stating "hiking the ski trails is not allowed" but shortly beyond this sign you will pick up the first yellow blaze. Mt. Kinsman Tr. recently blazed and well maintained.

Comments
Comments: With carspot from Emerel we went up new Mittersill-Cannon Tr. across Cannon to South Kinsman and down Kinsman Mt. Tr.. With nice weather lately; trails were mostly dry but still lots of mud, water etc. in spots. New trail could be very wet on feet with mix of grass, moss, mud, ski trail condition (lack of water drainage, new trail etc.). Not a great view day but on a nicer day views probably great on this loop. For excellent pictures and more detailed reports check out 1 HappyHiker or Steve Smiths blogs. Thanks guys for the preview info. Another nicely timed hike as it was raining hard and very windy upon our arrival back at my car at Cannon.
