|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||North Tripyramid, Middle Tripyramid, NH|
||Pine Bend Brook Trail, Mt. Tripyramid Trail|
|Date of Hike:
||Sunday, December 30, 2012|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Plows have left plenty of shoulder room on both sides of the road. 8 cars easily fit on 1 side. |
||Snow - Packed Powder/Loose Granular, Snow - Unpacked Powder |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||The many small crossings are not bridged. A little tricky to keep snowshoes out of the water with the steep snowy slopes encouraging you to slip right into the water. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Plenty of leaners. Removed a couple of small blowdowns. |
||Kali had a blast. But got wet feet on the crossings. Icy ledges were not an issue. All covered with plenty of snow. |
|Lost and Found:
||Lots of traffic today! A few inches of fresh powder down low and 5-6" up high. lots of drifting up on the ridge. A dozen or more hikers in snowshoes have the trail in fine shape. Not packed solid though - lots of loose fluffy stuff on the steeps, making for a fun descent! A few bare booters were out for an afternoon stroll down low but not too much damage. Prob cleaned up by late day hikers.|
Beautiful but chilly day. No sign of tracks from Sabbaday or Scaur.
Thanks, Heather - fun day!
