The Kinsman Ridge Trail leads to the top of Cannon Mountain in Franconia, New Hampshire. The home of the "Old Man of the Mountain", the trail offers a difficult course to the top complete with giant rocks, over turned trees, deep mud, rapidly eroding paths that were carved out by extreme amounts of water cascading from the top of the mountain. Exposed roots, slippery moss, bugs and the thin air, were all of the things we battled against to make it to the top. Overall, the best hike ever!!!
