Comments
Comments: We had the entire mountain to ourselves yesterday; we didn't see another soul, which was surprising because it was a perfect day with mild temperatures and little wind. We wore snowshoes from beginning to end; never took them off. There is still significant snow on this trail (no bare patches yet), and it is wet and sticky and you'll easily posthole without snowshoes (there was lots of evidence of this). Between our snowshoes and our sleds on the descent, we did our best to smooth out the trail a bit. The Cross-Rivendell Trail offers a number of beautiful views en route and both summits are spectacular. Although we are nearing the end of March, Mount Cube is still a great winter hike.
