Trail Conditions:
need to walk to stratton pond trailhead via road (shared with many snowmobiles) from parking area at long trail junction on stratton-arlington road (0.9 miles, no snowshoes needed). stratton pond trail was completely unbroken until crossing catamount x-c ski trail (snowshoes required). after crossing catamount x-c ski trail, strattond pond trail was broken but snowshoes were still helpful. long trail from stratton pond shelter to stratton mtn was broken by x-c skier a day or two prior but snowshoes are needed.

Special Equipment Required:
snowshoes (see above). no crampons needed.

Comments:
saw a moose on the long trail up to stratton mtn! also the view from the fire tower is awesome but frigid.
