Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Baker Rd. heading into the trailhead from Rte. 25A was completely mud when I went to leave, and I did end up getting stuck in it for quite a while. SUVs may be fine, and I suspect it'll be fine (although heavily rutted) once it's frozen, but just something to be mindful of in the meantime.

Comments: After having endured a rough adventure up Smarts Mtn., I decided that my ankles hadn't endured enough torture for the day, so I scuttled on over to Cube before heading home. Took CRT out and back which, while rough in some sections, was generally very easygoing in snowshoes. Definitely some slushy/slippery sections, but nothing of major concern. Made it up just in time for some lovely late-afternoon views :)
