Comments
Comments: No snow or ice whatsoever on the Long Trail to Stratton or the side trail to the north peak. Lots of mud on the lower 1.4 miles of trail, but far less of it past the forest road crossing. The weather was much better and sunnier than predicted, so the LT was noticeably drier on the hike back down.

Stratton Mountain was fairly bustling, but still not as crowded as I thought it would be. Excellent hike, and this was the first major mountain I've hiked this year that was snow and ice free. Felt good to leave the microspikes in the car with confidence.

Thanks to Riley P. for a fun hike in the Green Mountain State!
