A moderate ascent brings you to two mountain peaks, and a welcome descent brings you in touch with a peacefully flowing brook and a waterfall.

Start out on the Pine Bend Brook Trail. After 3.2 miles you will arrive at a junction with the Scaur Ridge Trail. Stay right to continue on Pine Bend Brook. In just under a mile you will reach the summit of North Tripyramid Mountain. From here continue 0.7 miles to another junction. Stay on Pine Bend Brook. Half a mile from here you will arrive at the summit of Middle Trypyramid Mountain. The view isn't as clear as some of the other peaks in the area but it's still a great place to rest and enjoy the natural surroundings.

When you're satisfied, retrace your steps for 0.3 miles until you reach the Sabbaday Brook junction. Turn right and continue for 4.6 miles. You'll cross the Sabbaday Brook a few times and encounter the Sabbaday Falls. Enjoy the beautiful cascade as long as you like before you finish your descent. When you reach the parking area, turn left on Route 112 and walk another mile to the parking lot you started from.
