The Cross-Rivendell Trail
The Cross-Rivendell Trail

Route: Cross Rivendell Trail, summit spur

Trail was mostly dry. Some logging activity near the top of the woods/logging road, though not affecting trail.

Generally tame grades and decent footing, but I think the other (Norris) side is a nicer walk. Wish there were better views from the summit.
