“This very steep trail leads to a junction near Pyramid Mountain and Sawteeth.”— John Maurizi
Follow the trail for about 300 yards to the Rainbow Falls Trail junction. This short trail leads back to a well-shaded, beautiful waterfall.
From here, the trail is straightforward and easy to follow. However, it is steep, rocky, and there are loads of exposed roots that are tiresome to negotiate.
The trail eventually comes to a junction where you can turn south onto the Sawteeth Trail to run to Sawteeth Peak. The A.W. Weld Trail turns to the north, heading to Pyramid Peak and then continuing onto a junction with the Adirondack Range Trail and the Great Range route.
