Route: Cherry Mountain Trail, Mt. Martha Spur Trail, (Mt. Martha), Mt. Martha Spur Trail, Cherry Mountain Trail

Not too much snow via this route. I wore snowshoes roundtrip, but if I were to do this one again tomorrow, I'd boot it, perhaps with light traction. Might be a nice snowshoe if we get some snow on Wednesday.

1-3" of snowpack down low (1-2" of powder, an inch or two of crud underneath), increasing to a little over half a foot on the snowmobile packed spur trail to the summit. Also observed snowmobile tracks on Martha's Mile. They turned back after a few hundred feet.
