Overall, this is an excellent trail and hike. We did it as an overnight staying at the Shelter at Stratton Pond. Pretty easy hike going up Stratton mountain, easier than expected for a 4,000 ft peak. Excellent view from atop the fire tower!!! Also, some nice views south on the way to the summitt. Statton pond is pretty big with a lot to do in the area. The hike out on day 2, 3.7 miles, was relatively flat with mild ups and downs, In the end - I would do it again, maybe in warmer weather than November!!
I'm a beginner hiker and this was the first mountain I have climbed. It's a beautiful hike especially through the glades. Be sure to stop by Stratton Pond for a beautiful view.
The Fire Tower is the best... but would highly recommend when doing it during a warmer season. It's a little treacherous climbing up the stairs frozen with a bit of ice.
