Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: There are many small water crossings and they are all doable right now. There was only one snow bridge left on all the crossings.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trail is in great shape, lots of branches to hit you in the face. But there were no obstacles to speak of. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: No doggies on the trail today! Probably a pretty tough trail for pups due to the steepness of the trail and the snow conditions. 
Bugs: Interestingly enough, we did see some flying insects. Not sure but I thought it was a mosquito 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: My energy a few times. This is a steep, steady beautiful two mile climb to North Tripyramid!  
Comments: Trail was hard pack when we left the parking lot at 7:45. We started the hike in spikes and switched to snowshoes beyond the two mile mark where we switched to snowshoes as we started to gain some elevation and after the many Brook crossings. The two miles to North peak is some of the steepest sustained climbing I’ve done in the 4000 footers. The steepest section early on has quite a bit of postholes and was very narrow in spots. It’s all good though and really quite awesome. There is a lot of packed snow and many of the trail signs are almost buried. This isn’t the best two mountains for views but still quite a beautiful challenging trail. The hike over to middle mountain was in great shape and was much easier than it looked like it would be. Then there is the descent off North Peak! Holy mackerel, I’m just glad I’m here to write about it. Happy to be in my shoes for sure. I loved this hike but don’t feel compelled to do it again soon.
