2012 FOT48 North Tripyramid Hike Event

2009 North Tripyramid
Each year, on or around September 11th, patriotic and impassioned hikers embark on a collective journey to raise American flags on all 48 of the 4,000+ foot summits in New Hampshire. This memorial hike continues to be the remembrance of the thousands of lives taken violently and unexpectedly. Participants create a moving memorial that is a compassionate show of emotional support to other human beings who have suffered heartbreaking, unfathomable loss.

* 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.
