Comments
Comments: Light snow and overcast in the morning; partly cloudy by the afternoon; 28 degrees on the Kancamagus. Pine Bend and Tripyramid trails were well broken. Ascending Pine Bend, the trail was steep but very manageable with light traction. The ascent to Middle Tripyramid took us three hours. We saw many hikers (10-12) on the summits. We came down via Sabbaday Brook, which was drifted and difficult for the steep stretch going down but easier after the first half mile or so. Used snowshoes for the entire descent to the falls, which were very beautiful. Brook crossings by rock hopping and some ice bridges; not difficult but could be tricky if rocks became slippery or ice bridges melted.
