Route: Silver Mountain Trail

Trail had a coating of snow/granular/ice pretty much top to bottom and a few minor ice bulges, but nothing requiring the use of traction. Very nice open summit with views in nearly all directions (except to the north, fortunately, as there's a wind farm in that direction).

Directions to trailhead: From Route 10 in East Lempster, take Lempster Mountain Road southeast over the height of land, then take a right onto South Road. Continue past the last house on the road (not maintained beyond this point in winter). The Ashuelot River Headwaters Forest parking lot will eventually be on the left. The Silver Mountain Trail trailhead is on the opposite side of the road, to the left of the house.
