|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||Middle Tripyramid, North Tripyramid, NH|
||Sabbaday Brook Trail, Mt. Tripyramid Trail|
|Date of Hike:
||Saturday, March 11, 2017|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Sabbaday lot is plowed |
||Snow - Packed Powder/Loose Granular, Snow/Ice - Monorail (Stable) |
||Light Traction |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Open water on a couple of crossings required care, especially the third crossing of the Sabbaday Brook (we did it slightly upstream of the trail crossing). There are partial snowbridges on some, but rock hoppping is needed. Microspikes were a confidence booster for these. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||A few blowdowns to duck under or step over. |
||Saw some paw prints lower down, nothing up top. |
|Lost and Found:
||Found a walky talkie submerged in a stream that feeds Sabbaday. It is probably non-operational given it was in the water. However, I am happy return it to its owner if they want it back -- email me. ||
||Brutally cold and windy today. Saw no one today. Barely stopped all day.|
Microspike sort of day. Monorail and snow pack is firm, but not completely solid. Slanted slab for numerous stretches was mean on the ankles. Dusting to 4" of new snow on trail obscured recent travel and likely filled in some of our tracks (our accessing tracks were gone by the time we came down). Drifting up top, but not bad enough to need snowshoes. Steep sections had enough snow and give such that microspikes did just fine. Post-holed exactly once the whole hike, and only up to ankle.
Trail was not always obvious along the ridge, but we found our way ok.
We will need to come back for fool killer another dat.
