Stratton Mountain

Participants in this hike will explore the montane spruce-fir forests of southern Vermont near Stratton Mountain. The terrain is steep, and the trail is rocky, but the strenuous trip is worth it. We will see plant species such as mountain maple (Acer spicatum), twisted stalk (Streptopus spp.), and blue bead lily (Clintonia borealis). We also might be lucky enough to see birds such as the blackpoll warbler and the ruby-crowned kinglet. The hike begins west of the town of Stratton. From there, we will trek nine miles round trip to the Stratton Mountain fire tower and back again.

Please be prepared for all weather types, and bring plenty of water and food. This field study is for advanced hikers.
