Ascent Trip Report

After spending the night at the Lafayette Place Campground we ate some breakfast at the campground and got on the road. We hit the trail at 10am and spend a little extra time exploring the falls at the base. We then hit the trail. It was a long, ~4 mile, flat hike in with many brook crossings. These may not be possible at high water times. The last half mile to one mile of the Sabbaday Brook Trail was VERY steep on rock that was quite smooth. Going would be very difficult if this were wet, especially on the way down. From the top of the Sabbaday Brook Trail it was an easy hike over to the summit of North Tripyramid and then back over to the summit of Middle Tripyramid. Both were wooded, but there were some OK views of Waterville Valley from the summit of Middle Tripyramid. We stopped and had a quick bite to eat at the summit of Middle Tripyramid but were quickly on our way due to the bugs. Back down the way we came we were done by 4pm. Went back to Lincoln to get some iced cream and meat to grill up that night and realized that we forgot our trekking poles in the parking lot and had to drive all the way back over to the trailhead to pick them up. Fortunately they were still there.

On the hike we saw some moose sign and many small toads along the trail.

That night at the Lafayette Campground we were awoken by the screams of a fisher cat from across the valley.
