I stayed at the Stratton Brook Hut overnight with a large group. Worth the hike, even in sub-zero weather. The food is great, the floors are heated, the facility is beautiful. Nice staff. Only complaint: the beds are hard.

That's true- the huts are always open, but now until December 16th they're in self-service season. Reservations are still needed to spend the night, and guests pack-in and pack-out all their own food and gear.

Stratton Brook Hut isn't close to any swimming, but there are some places along the Narrow Gauge Trail to swim in the Carrabassett River. Beer and wine is served at the huts during full-service season.

Hi we are staying one night in Stratton Brook Hut in August. What is the best (not necessarily shortest) trail head to park our car and hike up for the night? Also, is it possible to hike up one trail and then back down another, or will we make the same hike down as we take up? It looks like there are three options of trail heads that lead to Stratton Brook hut so it's a bit confusing. Thanks for any help. Please keep in mind we will be parking our car overnight so the suggestion for trailhead must allow for overnight parking.
