Ascent Trip Report

I came in the "back way" to the Tripyramids from Sabbaday Brook Trail. I chose that trail for a couple of reasons - I knew the trail would be very wet and didn't want to do wet slides; also, I wanted to visit Sabbaday Falls too. I was on the trail at sunrise since I had to be back home by mid-afternoon for a Labor Day BBQ; it's also nice to enjoy the falls area without a bunch of tourists around. Once you get past the falls, the trail soon went from a wide, flat path to a lightly maintained trail. In a lot of spots, the trail was nothing more than a herd path and in spots it just went away and I was bushwhacking. I really appreciated that I had the trail on my GPS because I had to use it to get back on track a couple of times. This went on for a mile or so, then the trail settled down and became much easier to follow. There were a lot of blowdowns to negotiate. Other than the problems staying on the trail in the first mile, it was a fairly uneventful hike. It's long and flat except for the short steep hike up to the ridge. The trail was very wet today, but the weather was nice, but humid. The ridge trail between the North and Middle peaks is very pleasant. There are almost no views along the entire hike as the entire hike is in the woods. Met about six people on the trail which is about six more than I was expecting.
