Cranberry Peak

March 17 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

Our upcoming hike will be up Cranberry Peak (3,214 feet) in the Bigelow Range via the Bigelow Range Trail.  We will meet in the trailhead parking area at the end of Currie Street (sometimes spelled “Curry”) in Stratton at 9am on Saturday, March 17th.  This will be an up-and-back hike up the Bigelow Range Trail, with a distance of 3.2 miles each way for a total distance of 6.4 miles.  The trail is moderate for most of the first half and then emerges onto open ledges and low spruce forest for the remainder.  The views from the summit of Cranberry Peak are excellent.

Due to uncertain trail conditions, we will send an update two days before the hike to everybody who has signed up.  Snowshoes and microspikes or other traction aid will be required for this hike.
