    Long Trail
    Stealth camping is all fun and games until you have to take a dump.

    It really is, such a great route over the spine of the Green Mountains. I won't be back on it in June, but from July on I plan to be out there as much as I can. Thinking about an End-to-End next summer as well.

    Yukon,

    I am planning on doing a four day 3 night back pack with my 2 sons next week. Easy miles between camps has been the order for past hikes. Originally I was planning on using the Lye Brook trail, but understand that it was wiped out in the vicinity of the falls and isn't open yet. This is my new route:
    Stratton Pond Trail to Stratton pond. 4 miles Wednesday
    Long trail to Branch pond Trail\ 4.5 miles to William B Douglas shelter Thursday
    Branch pond trail to Bourne Pond 3.5 miles to Bourne pond Friday
    Lye brook trail to Stratton pond trail and out 7 Miles Saturday

    Are all these trails open and do you think this will work.

    Thanks

    Hey jpkeo, all those trails are still open and clear. The only one that can be tough is the trail from Bourne Pond to Stratton pond. The last time I was through there a lot of the trail was submerged in water (I believe from beaver activity) and there was a lot of blow downs. It wasn't overly hard to navigate, but a map or GPS would be handy to have just in case.

    Where did you read that the Lye Brook trail was washed out by the falls? I'm wondering if what you read was in fact the landslide (from hurricane Irene) that happened about a 1/4 mile before Lye Brook Falls on the spur trail leading to the falls...which even with the landslide is still able to be hiked.

    I thought I read that on the Long Trail conditions page , but when i just went back and looked it is the section going from Bourne Pond to Stratton. We have a GPS and compass so we should be ok. Thanks for the update.
