TRAIL CLOSURES
 

*The Cannon-Mittersill hiking trail is closed due to washouts and damage on the trail


*There will be a temporary closure of a section of the Lonesome Lake Trail in Franconia Notch State Park.  The section of trail between the junctions of the Hi-Cannon Trail Junction and the Dodge Cut-Off will be closed for maintenance starting Monday, June 12 through Friday, July 28 while the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) provides trail rehabilitation, repair and other reconstruction efforts.

During this trail closure, visitors can access Lonesome Lake, Lonesome Lake Hut, and surrounding trails by hiking the Lonesome Lake Trail to the Hi-Cannon Trail to the Dodge Cut-Off up to the height of land at Lonesome Lake. From there, all trails will be open for access. This detour will add 0.3 miles of trail and 150 feet of elevation, and the hike to the hut is estimated to take around 15 minutes longer.
