Trail: AT/LT from VT 11/30 (nr Manchester) to Stratton Pond|
Date Hiked: 5/5-6/07
Conditions: Trail here mostly dry. A few muddy patches but less than usual. Some snow patches in Lye Brook area and near Stratton Pond. Water running well but not high.
Special Required Equipment: Was glad I had low gaiters for the few snow patches but would have been OK w/out them.
Comments: All this is low elevation, so got gmc's ok to hike as long as trail was not too muddy. In fact, it was less muddy than nearly any other time I've hiked in VT--much better than last July! Day hikers told me that there's still lots of snow on the Trail over Stratton--but it's mud season, they shouldn't have been up that high! Beautiful weekend; no bugs yet.
