Just downhill from the Pine Bend - Scaur Ridge junction is a duck under tree fall that is about a foot in Diameter. On the ridge between Scaur Ridge and the cone of North Tripyramid is a tree anout 7 to 8 feet above ground which is about a foot in diameter. The bog bridges on Pine Bend that are one log wide are deteriorating and require good balance. Some eroded trail sections at higher elevations.

Comments: The surfaces were dry which was good for footing on the ledge areas on the cone of North Tripyramid. By-passes exist around the worst ledge sections when conditions are wetter or icy.

Some views from both summits.

Met lots of hikers today. All trail approaches were used. Had a nice chat with three Northeastern Univ students on North Tripyramid.
