Highlights

  • Middle Tripyramid is New Hampshire 4000 footer in the Sandwich Range of the White Mountains.
  • Part of Mount Tripyramid, so named for its three distinct peaks along a mile-long summit ridge.
  • Scaur Peak and The Fool Killer are subsidiary peaks to the northwest and northeast.
  • To the southeast, Tripyramid is flanked by The Sleepers.
  • Both North and Middle Tripyramid are included in the AMC's New England 4000-footers peak challenge. Although over 4,000 feet high, South Tripyramid is not because it stands less than 200 ft above the col on the ridge from Middle Tripyramid.
"Hiked along with North Tripyramid. We decided on taking the Pine Bend Brook Tr as an out-and-back. Turned out to be a great plan as Sabbaday was closed for safety/maintenance, and everyone we know who had taken the Livermore Tr/Tripyramid loop had only talked about how taxing it had been and wished us luck. We had clear skies and mid seventies. It was a little muggy and buggy, but perfect on the breezy sections of trail. We saw some very healthy lady slippers growing along the lower two miles of trail (a pleasant and easy start and end to the hike), and multiple toads and butterflies. The view" - gooner, Jun 22, 2018
"After N. Tripyramid, we went over and did Middle. We knocked into Ed Hawkins on the way over. He gave each of us a couple of Dove chocolates. We reached Middle and still had no views. On the way back out, we got views on North Tri. Great hike." - newenglandwarrior, Apr 28, 2018
"My second summit for the day, after North Tripyramid. The Black Hawk helicopter flew over head as I hiked between North and Middle peaks. Met a bearded fellow who raise the American flag at the summit. He had pistachio cookies! Two nice viewpoints, to both the east and west. Continued on to South Tripyramid." - gullyhiker, Sep 9, 2017
"Well, I don't know how to even tell this story...it's a little bit of a dramatic "don't do/ what could go wrong" story. A friend and I set out to climb Whiteface...it was a beautiful 50 degree day...the sun was shining...it was perfect! About halfway up I said something about if we were real crazy we would have hiked over to the tripyramids...she said, well you should do it and I will drive and get you. I giggled...thought about it and said awesome. I called a hiking friend while I still had service to ask him to track the route and tell me if he saw any water crossings and how long it would " - shay-shay, Mar 9, 2017
"Bagged this after going up the North Slide to North Tripyramid. The col between the two was a nice descent to the Sabbaday junction, then it was a steep final 0.2 to the Middle summit." - HikeLikeMike, Jul 24, 2016
