Section 5: Kelley Stand Road to Kendall Farm Road
Please Note: Parking is currently not available at the North Brookwood/West Ridge Road access point (near Stratton Mountain Resort) described in the CT Guidebook. You may still use it as a drop-off or pick-up point. Thank you for your cooperation.
This primarily back-country section lies completely within the Green Mountain National Forest and leads to beautiful Stratton Pond, where there is a shelter for overnight camping, and to Little Pond, another pristine, isolated pond. The section ends with a steep, downhill run on an old logging road before crossing the Winhall River.
This easy-to-intermediate section is pleasant and very scenic. There is one mid-way access point in the Stratton Mountain Resort complex. Most of the terrain is gently undulating. There is a fairly steep but wide downhill run on an old logging road to Kendall Farm Rd., but this can be avoided by detouring onto the I.P. Rd. (former CT), adding 2 miles to this section.
