Description 

Stratton Brook Hut is perched at the top of the legendary Oak Knoll Trail. With spectacular views of the Bigelow Range, Sugarloaf and beyond, Stratton Brook is the perfect destination for day visits and overnight excursions.

Winter provides skiers, snowshoers and fat bikers with a hearty workout going up and a fun, fast descent heading down. There are also many options for day trips on surrounding trails. 

Summer months offer hiking and mountain biking. Hikers will often use Stratton Brook Hut as a base camp to access multiple 4,000' peaks in the Bigelow Range; now with direct access via the new Bigelow Approach Trail, while bikers can access many of the side trails around the Carrabassett Valley. 

Lunch is open to day visitors from 11:30-1:30 on Saturdays & Sundays during full service season; see more here >>

Maine Huts & Trails would like to offer special thanks to Clem and Rolande Begin for making this hut possible.
