|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||Middle Tripyramid, North Tripyramid, NH|
||Sabbaday Brook Trail, Mt. Tripyramid Trail, Pine Bend Brook Trail, Route 112|
|Date of Hike:
||Saturday, June 12, 2021|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Some open places at the Sabbaday Brook trailhead parking at 8:30AM. This lot is used by tourists to access Sabbaday Falls. Toilet facilities available. Fee lot. |
||Dry Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||All brooks were easily crossed on rocks. Some rocks are mossy. Many water courses have dried out or small pockets of dead water. Water levels are low. The crossings on Sabbaday Brook Trail may be difficult in high water. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Trails in good condition. Only two blow downs on the Sabbaday Brook Trail between the fourth crossing and the steep ascent to the ridge may be eligible for removal by wilderness standards. Even these two pose no real difficulty for passage (straddle over and duck under). |
||Should be fine for most dogs. Some steep ledges. Saw many dogs today. |
||Most of the flying insects were bothersome when not moving especially at the peaks. Otherwise no problems. |
|Lost and Found:
||Both the Sabbaday Brook and Pine Bend Brook Trails have lengthy level/low grade slopes for a long distance in from the Kancamagus Highway. The trails steepen as they near Tripyramid with ledge/rock surfaces that were dry. These sections may be difficult when wet or icy. Not much mud today. There was a nice mossy small brook in a narrow valley on the Sabbaday Brook Trail above the fourth crossing.|
Saw Lady's Slippers, Bunchberries, and Blue Bead Lilies in bloom.
Many hikers converging on the Tripyramids from all directions (Sabbaday, Pine Bend, the slide, and Kate Sleeper). Nice to talk with Shawn (or Sean) from Jericho VT, Joe and Julie from Manchester, and some MIT hikers. Even so, I hiked alone on Sabbaday Brook and Pine Bend Brook Trails for most of the mileage.
