Great trail. The Hi Cannon trail’s blue blazes were very faded. We probably saw 3-4 along the path that were evident. The trail is steep but it’s a quick climb to the top. The ladder was a nice addition and there were wonderful views along the way. Lonesome lake coming down was great. Steep in the beginning while going over large rocks but that kept it a fun adventure! The blazes on this trail were well marked. Seeing the lake towards the end was beautiful.

Love it. This is my favorite hike so far. Lots of scrambling. Wish the view had been better. Pretty foggy at the top. Aggressive for beginners. Didn't take too long as it's a short hike but the inclines were legit for moderate. I believe this should be listed in the hard category if it wasn't for it's shorter length.

My first 4000-footer! You really can't beat the views in Franconia Notch on a blue-sky day. The Lafayette parking lot fills up crazy fast so expect to park alongside the road on a weekend. There's a nice little store at the campground for snacks after hiking and a real bathroom too. On top of the mountain, you can refill water and use the tram building to warm up (or cool down).
