The Cross-Rivendell Trail near the summit
Route: Cross Rivendell Trail
Trail was a well packed snowshoe highway all the way to the summit. Tracks also heading northbound, likely to the north peak ledges (did not see any tracks at the AT crossing on Route 25A). No tracks heading to Smarts Mountain either.
Snowpack probably ranges from 20 to 30 inches.

Directions to trailhead: From Route 25 in Wentworth, take Route 25A west. Shortly after driving past Mt. Cube, take a left onto Baker Road. The Cross Rivendell Trail will eventually cross the trail, with the Mt. Cube section being further up the road. In winter 2013-14, there was a plowed turnaround area about 1/10 of a mile before the Mt. Cube section trailhead.
