Two hours and fifteen minutes from the Pine Bend TH on the Kanc. Then up and down to the South Summit. Lots of wind damage from the day before on the trail as soon you hit Scaur Ridge.
Went up and did this for Veteran's Day. It had snowed a few inches overnight, so lots of fresh snow to play in. Nice cool crisp late fall hike, but not a lot of views from Pine Bend Brook trail.
Nice view up and down the slides. A few truly terrifying spots on the North slide.
Summited North and Middle Tripyramid with my brother via the Pine Bend Brook Trail. It was steep in sections, but shorter and probably a lot easier than going over the slides.
Fun and challenging hike. Went up North Slide, challenging but not too difficult...and I hate exposure.
Partly sunny day and super fun going up the slide. Some parts had running water and we avoided that for obvious reasons. Nice views all day long.
Hiked the North Slide to South Slide, a challenging, but enjoyable route. Was disappointed in the trail that led to the loop, as it made the hike considerably shorter, but all in all enjoyed it as a whole.
My first slide climb -- super fun! Went with a meetup.com group: up the north slide, then around all three peaks. So, so many black flies.
Did as part of the "flags on the 48"
enjoyed a full moon, a nice campfire with some bushmills before racking out in the tent
the last hike with peaches my first american bulldog
i'll never forget it for that reason
not as bad as they say
Did the loop the wrong way... Camped at the top of the south peak and hiked out the next day. The hike down the north slide did my legs in.
Rain and ice made the north slide difficult at times, but a fun scramble no doubt.
Got nailed by a summer hailstorm on the way down, good times!
A bit chilly (low 20's) as we started on the Livermore trail up the North Slide, which was a nice scramble. The South slide was an easy climb down, but watch your footing on the loose scree and rock. The rest of the hike was pretty boring. I have to say that this trip was a lot easier than I had been led to believe. The book time is supposed to be 7 hours. We did it in 5 +, but really took our time to take in the warm sun at some of the overlooks.
This was the first mountain I did that I didn't have a camera on me. I forgot it at home, unbelievable! It was a good day too. It's been a weird summer for me in NH. Everytime I want to go, it has been crappy weather. It rained some the past couple of days beforehand, so I decided to take the Scaur Ridge trail on the way up, which I liked. I liked the whole hike. There was nobody else on the trail until I was coming down the south slide. Lots of people were enjoying the day on the Livermore trail. If you have a bike that would be a good way to do the hike quicker, because you can easily ride a bike down the Livermore trail, which many people were doing.
Climbed via the Pine Bend Brook Trail from the Kancamagus Highway. Summitted both North Tripyramid and Middle Tripyramid. Nice views from Middle Peak. Lots of blowdown damage for a previous storm. Not very many people hike Tripyramid this way.
Great loop with amazing slides. The wind was quite strong going up the North slide which made things more fun. Completed the loop and headed over to Tecumseh for some more fun.
north slide - fun class 2/3
My final push to complete the 4,000 foot peaks in New England.
