Comments
Comments: Some of the ledges on Hi-Cannon were wet but were not slippery. The section of Kinsman Ridge between Lonesome Lake and Hi-Cannon trails is steep and rough footing on boulders. Upper portion of the Hi-Cannon trail and the Kinsman Ridge trail have many muddy spots and standing water. There were rocks, roots, and logs that facilitated the passage in these spots. Observation tower is open. The tramway summit building is closed to the public although there were maintenance people inside. Two hikers reported seeing two large bears on the Lonesome Lake trail. Good views from the ledges on the Hi-Cannon trail and from the summit. Many hikers out today.
