Dave, Matt, Glen and I hiked Cannon Mtn via Kinsman Ridge Trail. A portion of this trail is near the Kinsman Glade run off the Cannon Ski area so we saw plenty of ski tracks there which actually made following the trail more difficult. Tree trunks were well covered with snow which made spotting the blazes almost impossible (I think I only saw 4 or 5 all day). We missed the turn-off from the glade trail on the way up that would have taken us more toward the former site of the Old Man of the Mountain but we caught the right track on the way down so we were able to see the entire trail. We spent close to an hour at the hut atop Cannon Ski area which was a real luxury, allowing us to warm up and dry out before the descent. In all, a fantastic day in the woods.
