Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Stratton Pond Trail Head is rough with many large boulders at the entrance to be maneuvered around. Someone was parked across the entrance blocking access. Obviously, don’t be this person. I parked at Stratton Mountain Trail Head a mile away. Plenty of room there.  
Surface Conditions

Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All easy or bridged. Many dried up.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Nothing new. Many old blow downs that are easy to get over or around.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Relatively easy. Just watch the mileage. It’s a 12 mile day with the road walk. On the backside of the peak (if going NOBO), there is little water until the pond. Plan accordingly and make sure your dog can handle it.  
Bugs
Bugs: A few mosquitoes today 
Lost and Found

Comments
Comments: Great day with perfect temps. Stratton is a great hike to a fire tower (it is currently closed due to COVID). I took the option to go up and over and down to Stratton Pond. I exited by the Blue blazed Stratton Pond trail that is a nice flat walk out. Mostly Green Tunnel hiking but well worth it, very few people out except at the summit and most do out and backs to either the pond or the peak. The road walk between trail heads is only a mile. Watch the road though as it can get busy. Over all a nice day.
