Cutting across snowfields below Gulfside on the way to Mt. Jefferson
Route: Jewell Trail, snowfields (Mt. Jefferson), snowfields, Jewell Trail
Last minute plan, cold start, but warmer as the day went. Despite having very little snow at the base, there was enough to cut across snowfields above treeline without risking damage to vegetation.

Directions to trailhead: To get to the Cog Base Station in winter, take 302 West from Crawford Notch, then take a right onto Base Station Road. In winter 2012, there was plowed parking available below the Cog Base Station. Looking up the mountain from the parking lot, the spur trail to the Jewell Trail begins above the base station building, above the first Cog track bridge crossing, to the left at the top of an embankment.
