This is a wonderful area for hiking. There are many options that wind through the Lye Brook Wilderness leading to isolated ponds, rambling brooks and beautiful tumbling waterfalls. This particular hike leads to two ponds, Bourn Pond and Stratton Pond, and to several camping shelters. There is also access to Branch Pond and Stratton Pond Trails. This and the other area hikes are especially popular during the fall foliage season due to their mild elevation grades and a mixed forest of maple, oak, beech and birch. The famed Lye Brook Falls is also located along this lovely 14 mile winding path which traverses many ravines, hillsides and open wetlands.
Directions: From Manchester Depot, VT, Travel SR 11 / 30 and make a sharp right onto East Manchester Road. Travel about a mile or so making a left turn onto Lye Brook Falls Service Road. Just beyond the point where Glen Road intersects you see a dead-end road where the trail begins.
Elevation Gain: 1,900 feet
