Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Parked roadside along the Kanc at the Pine Bend Brook trailhead. Room for at least 5-6 cars, but it’ll vary depending on how big or small the snow banks from the DOT plow trucks get over the next few months. No issues parking at the Sabbaday Brook trailhead, for those who plan to start there.

Water Crossing Notes: All of the many brook crossings were crossed without issue. Some of the crossings had big solid chunks of snow-covered ice that I was able to walk over. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A few major blowdowns within the wilderness zone which were step-overs or duck-unders depending on one’s height.

Comments: Save for a few scattered exposed rocks, there was continuous snow coverage from base to summit. Pine Bend Brook Trail was well broken out the whole way, but wasn’t too consolidated past the wilderness boundary, so snowshoes would be best from there (although I wore them for the entire hike). The Mt. Tripyramid Trail was also well tracked to Middle Tripyramid; from there to South Tripyramid, it (unsurprisingly) looked like no one touched it in ages. Sabbaday Brook Trail didn’t appear to have seen any traffic since the weekend storm, so conditions on that trail were basically 1-3 inches of unpacked powder on top of a discernible snowshoe trench, at least until the very busy Sabbaday Falls area.

Not a whole lot in the way of views, mostly due to cloud cover, but the views that were there were great, and the forest looked like Narnia with the fresh snow and overhead sun shining through. Felt great to see winter make a proper return to the Whites!
