Comments: Because of the 20'x 8" deep stream running across the Stratton Brook Pond Rd, the decision was made to skip the Bigelows and go to the AT crossing right off rt27. A few folks with big pickups and an SUV made it through okay but my little car was unenthused. I took a pic - email me if you want to see what you're up against. We were the only ones in the lot at the AT crossing and the 10.4 mile trek up to & from North Crocker couldn't have been more pleasant. As it is a bit less popular, I'll say that it is a relatively gentle trail with hardly any steepness to speak of, in comparison to most of the other more rugged Maine AT anyway. There was about an inch of snow to begin and then several inches up high. Amazingly there were only a few small patches of ice, pretty easy to get around, and virtually no nasty ice-hidden-under-snow. Very nice going the whole way. Wore trail runners and brought but didn't need microspikes. Enjoyed seeing the Bigs range peeking through the trees behind us now that the leaves are down.
