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

Very little snow west of the Kinsmans and north of the notch (did not venture east of Bretton Woods today, but the Presidentials were white). Cherry Mountain Trail was late October conditions - a dusting of snow over occasional patches of black ice. Frost like consistency made the ice not too slippery. No glazing like down in the Lakes Region yesterday. A few small patches of snow on the snowmobile trail spur to the summit. We never put on Microspikes, but some might prefer them for the descent
