Description

The Fishin' Jimmy Trail connects the Lonesome Lake Hut with the Kinsman Ridge Trail and is part of the Appalachian Trail. The AMC White Mountain "Book Time" for this trail is 1hr 32 mins. From the Lonesome Lake Hut the trail the trail is relatively flat until it crosses a small creek. At this point the trail begins to climb and there will be a number of small wooden ladders and one steep section with wooden steps pinned to the rock ledge. The Fishin' Jimmy trail is sheltered and is usually wet. The wooden steps can be slick with moisture and moss. The trail continues to climb after the wooden steps and ends at the Kinsman Ridge Trail.

I hated this trail. It is mostly scaling boulders and taking giant risky steps up rock faces and slippery roots and mud. If you have any knee or hip issues, or if you have short legs, I'd skip this trail. Whoever Fishin Jimmy was, he could have just stayed at Lonesome Lake and enjoyed the view there. Oct 30, 2017
