Cannon is arguably better known for it’s skiing than hiking, which is apparent when you reach the top and can order chicken tenders and a Sam Adams. You’ll also likely encounter folks fresh from the tram that are incredulous that someone would chose to hike up. There are some truly unique views of Franconia Notch, best observed from the top of Cannon Cliff, an outlook that you’ll recognize from traveling on Route 93. Now you can point upwards and say, “I hiked that”.
