|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Lots of erosion, due to lack of maintenance.
Special note to the section of Kinnsman Ridge trail descending from Cannon Mt. to Kinnsman Mt.and to upper Lonesome Lake trail junction. Due to many years of neglected attention, the trail has literally become treacherous in descending. lots of erosion with limited foot holds on slanted rock slabs. Hikers have attempted to bypass some sections, but due the steepness (in my opinion) it will not prevail. I advise not descending in wet conditions. Also in my opinion, this section of trail should be closed or avoided until some maintenance can be performed on it. |
||flying around in some sections, but not bad. |
|Lost and Found:

Otherwise, all trails are in spec with typical NH trails. Great day out, hot with a breeze which kept the humidity at bay. Many folks enjoying the water at lonesome lake.
