Had a great time breaking the loop into two half days. The climb up Stratton was a welcomed work out. We had a foggy afternoon so no views at the top. Great tent sites at the pond and lovely swimming too! The hike out was flat and easy which made it so we could enjoy the surroundings and each other’s company. This is a great route if you’re looking to get back into backpacking and/or if you’re looking for an enjoyable easy weekend. We recorded at between 12 and 13 miles round trip.
