The Tripyramids consist of three
peaks: North Tripyramid (4,140 ft.), Middle Tripyramid (4,110
ft.), and South Tripyramid (4,090 ft.). They form the eastern
wall of Waterville Valley in New Hampshire's White Mountains.
Many people hike all three peaks on the same trip starting at
Livermore Road and using the slide trails, which form a loop.
The North and South Slide Trails are actual rock slides and offer
a challenging hike because of their steepness and slipperiness.
It is generally recommended to hike up the North Slide Trail,
traverse across Middle Tripyramid, and then down South Tripyramid.
This is because the slabs of stone on the North Slide Trail are
so steep that most people prefer going up them than down them.
The views from the peaks are nothing special but the views
from the two slide trails are good and the fun of hiking on these
rock slides make the Tripyramids a very memorable event.
The Osceolas, Waterville Valley, and Tecumseh can be seen to the
west. Middle and North Tripyramid are two of the 48 designated
4,000 Footers in New Hampshire. The Tripyramids earn 5 stars
because hiking on those rock slabs is a blast.
