Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: We arrived mid day and there was ample parking in the dirt lot by the trailhead. (basically, pretend you are going to ride the tram- then head to the left of the lot. There is a little trail sign. There were also signs today for "hiker parking" but I am not sure if they are there year round.)

Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: We saw several dogs, and ours enjoyed the trail very much. It's pretty steep but nothing technical or sketchy at all. Also, it's short enough to make it a good hike for the doggos. 
Bugs
Bugs: They were actually a minor nuisance today. Bug spray is a good idea

Comments
Comments: The trail is in really good shape. Some wet rocks about a mile up, and some (mostly very avoidable) mud closer to the top. While this is a steep hike, you really can't beat the views (especially for a 4 miler rt hike. I mean, I love Hale but there's not much to see!! Youreally hit the jackpot view wise with Cannon.) It's also fun to freak out the people getting off the tram with your smelly/bug spray covered dirty self ;-) We saw a good number of hikers today, but had plenty of quiet time (except for the ever present din from I-93.) Hot summer weather for sure, but after such a dank spring I'm not complaining!
