This was my fifth time up Cannon Mountain but the first on “official” trails. The other four were part of the last leg of the Top Notch Triathlon where competitors climb up the ski trails generally not allowed for hiking. The day was gorgeous and sunny and the last time I might see the sun before heading back to California. My total trip was 8.25 miles – some of that was backtracking.

Hi-Cannon Trail Ladder is Exposed but Still Sketchy
