      * This is a group hike. Everyone will stay together and we will take our time hiking and enjoying the day. This hike is not suitable for children.
      -We will meet at the Livermore parking lot in Waterville Valley at 7:45am. We will divvy out parts of the flag staff/s and flags (2) to those who wish to help carry a piece to the summit.
      -We will begin our hike at 8:00am and ascend Livermore trail to the North end of Mt. Tripyramid trail.
      -The hike up Mt. Tripyramid trail ascending the North slide is very difficult. We will ascend very steeply up rock slabs, broken granite and gravel sections with extensive views West and North.
      -We will reach the summit of North Tripyramid (4,180′) approximately 12:00pm. The flags will be hoisted and will fly until 2:00pm. During this time we will hang out and eat lunch.
      -At approximately 2:00pm we will take the flags down, pack everything up and head back down. We will make an easier descent via Scaur Ridge trail and will return back to the parking area for about 5:30pm.

      What you will need: Plenty of water with extra in your bag, plenty of snacks and a lunch. Hiking boots/socks, small towel for wiping sweat!, a long sleeve shirt and poncho/windbreaker. Change of cloths/socks/sandals for the ride home. There is a large enclosed bathroom at the parking area.

      Contact me for questions or directions. We can also meet in a central location to carpool if needed.
