Overnight backpacking through a microburst area and past two ponds, followed by a long peaceful forest walk through Lye Brook Wilderness.
The hike to Bourn Pond and Stratton Pond is an excellent way to traverse through the heart of the Lye Brook Wilderness. There are lengthy stretches through pristine woodlands on this trek, but the big rewards are an early view from Prospect Rock above Manchester and then your choice of shelters or pond-side tent sites. This loop hike is described here as a two-day outing, but many extend it to three days (or longer).
