I will not be present at this peak but am helping some newer hikers to the event.
Some folks will be using the tram to head up. They will be bringing a flag and pole with them.
The hikers of the group will be starting from various times at the Kinsman Ridge trailhead near the Cannon parking lot.
Some of the slower hikers will be starting at 7:00am while some of the quicker hikers plan to begin around 9:00am.
This trail is steep and the footing can be difficult in some places. There maybe a rather large muddy section up near the top that attention needs to be paid to. Flags are expected to fly from 12:00 until 2:00pm. Join us if you would like.
Sue, the hikers are leaving from the Kinsman Ridge lot around 9:00. My impression is they are a quick bunch. So you can start a little earlier and they can catch you. The trail is steep and at times rough and muddy.
