    Is this new or am I missing something regarding Parking for Tripyramids

    https://www.newenglandtrailcondition...?entryid=54903

    Is this at the traditional lot for doing the Tri's from the Waterville Valley area? Or is this the one day fee for parking, I'm used to buying the annual pass. (Wasn't it $3 for a day before or was that raised years ago?
    Have fun & be safe

    That trip report started from the Kanc trailhead for Livermore Trail but yeah that is the one day fee for parking. They raised it a couple years ago from $3 to $5. The annual pass covers parking there.

    Pretty sure they meant "Livermore Road", and parked at the Depot/Livermore Camp in Waterville Valley. This lot does cost $5, and Livermore Road is one of the winter fat bike trails.

    Its nice of them to post a trail report but I get the impression the reporter is a newby. Nice to report on trash but even better to pick it up. Last thing I knew dogs were legal on hiking trails.

    Remember, the fee is *not* a parking fee—a fee for solely parking is prohibited—it is a fee for recreation amenities and the area must include all of the following:

    (i) Designated developed parking.

    (ii) A permanent toilet facility.

    (iii) A permanent trash receptacle.

    (iv) Interpretive sign, exhibit, or kiosk.

    (v) Picnic tables.

    (vi) Security services

    Note, those amenities may be located elsewhere remotely from the actual parking lot. That method has been used along the Kanc. at least at one lot. Not sure if they are still enforcing it.

    What gave it away? The "vertical rocks" on Pine Bend Brook Trail? And they supposedly went up the North Slide but that was a non issue? Thought it was a pretty sketchy report.

    There's a good chance that that practice is not legal.
