This hike is by Adventure Spark Suneil: he is not on Meetup. you can message me (Ari) with questions if needed.
This is moderate/intermediate hike in the Waterville Valley area (right off rt 93). This is a loop hike of about 10.5 miles. North peak has no view, but Middle peak is WOW!
1.) Meet at the Sabbaday Brook Trail parking lot and take the Pine Bend Brook trail going up.
2.) There are 2 junctions, but we keep bearing left. After 4 miles, the ascent will become steep.
3.) The last 1/2 mile we’ll be basically rock climbing! The North peak awaits us at the top with an amazing view of absolutely nothing, so we’ll continue the trail until we reach the Middle peak.
4.) We’ll stop for pics, panoramas, selfies, tinder profiles, and lunch.
5.) On the way down, we’ll take the Sabbaday Brook Trail for about 5 miles.
6.) Near the end we’ll swing by Sabbday Falls and enjoy the views.
7.) We’ll meet in the starting location and take it from there.
