Nice Trail lots of large rocks. The ladder was a fun part of the trail. There are some spots where the trail seems to be near vertical.

The lonesome lake is very beautiful and there are some beautiful views on the Kinsman Ridge trail. The trail is less "moderate" than other moderate trails - there'a a very steep section where you go hand over fist on rocks for about .5 miles coming up to the Kinsman Ridge tail. We did the trail staring with Lonesome Lake and the rock sheets on the Kinsman Trail take some care to descend. The trail is poorly marked, but easy to follow.
