A challenging yet rewarding climb up one slide and down another, with two official 4,000-foot peaks among the three peaks in between the slides. At 2.2 miles, the trail comes to Avalanche Brook and the junction with the Cascade Path. Mount Tripyramid is a landmark peak in the White Mountains recognizable by its three distinct summit cones—North, Middle, and South—and its slides. It’s a massive mountain, forming the eastern wall of Waterville Valley. North Tripyramid (4,180 feet) and Middle Tripyramid (4,140 feet) are both considered 4,000-footers. South Tripyramid (4,100 feet) is not because it doesn’t rise enough off the ridge between itself and Middle Tripyramid to be categorized as a separate mountain.
