I learned from a friend that there is a 4000 Footer Club in New Hampshire. There are 48 total 4000 footer peaks and our first one was the Cannon Mountain summit (4,080-foot) via the Kinsman Ridge Trail. Cannon Mountain is a year round destination offering a ski resort in the winter and aerial tramway rides to the summit in the off season. It was also the home of the Old Man of the Mountain rock feature that collapsed in 2003. The Kinsman Ridge Trail hike was a little over four miles round trip. There is an observation tower at the summit that can be reached via the Rim Trail. Cannon Mountain is part of the Franconia Notch State Park in New Hampshire. Franconia Notch State Park is part of the White Mountain National Forest of which the Appalachian Mountain Club helps maintain.
