New Hampshire, White Mountains,
This trip is part of the Boston Chapter Spring Hiking Program (SHP) and is only open to enrolled participants of that program. We will hike up Cannon Mountain (4080'), one of a limited number of 4000' White Mountain peaks that offer a 360-degree view. In Cannon's case, the centerpiece of the view is the spectacular Franconia range. The route up entails a few steep, rocky stretches and a sweep of exposed above tree line terrain on which to test your skills. There are some great views along the way, including the vista from the top of Cannon's famous cliff face, home of the former Old Man -- and as on only one other peak in the Whites, we will enjoy the services of a great summit lodge in addition to the views. The hike will comprise 4.2 miles round trip, with 2200' of elevation gain at a moderate pace. To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.
