Comments: Started a little later than planned, but was totally fine! Started at 6:49am, Lonesome Lake Trail to Hi-Cannon Trail up to Cannon Mountain. Did not see any other hikers. Beautiful morning, windy and cool on the tower but really nice! Cool clouds moving around and had some great views! Kinsman Ridge Trail over the Cannon Balls to North Kinsman and South Kinsman. Saw two other hikers. Some erosion, mostly over the Cannon Balls, and throughout the trail some very minor blow downs which we cleared out of the way. All mud bogs bridged. Fishin Jimmy Trail down and that's when we started to see other hikers coming up. Once we got to Lonesome Lake Hut, it was fairly busy with hikers and friendly doggos. Then down the Lonesome Lake Trail back to the trailhead there were a lot of hikers heading up. Beautiful day!
