Stratton-Eustis Hiking Trails
See the bottom of this page for related links

CRANBERRY PEAK: There are two ways to hike to the summit of Cranberry Peak. The first, is from Stratton. Follow the dirt road between the Stratton Lumber entrance and the Mainly Yours restaurant to the beginning of the trail. This is a short but strenuous hike with many lookouts. From the summit, you can either return on the same trail or continue your hike, descending by way of the picturesque Cranberry Pond and continuing on to Stratton Brook and Route 27. You'd need a car there waiting upon return. The second way would be to start from Route 27, or Stratton Brook (The A.T. crosses Route 27 approximately 2.7 miles north of the Sugarloaf Access Road. The Stratton Brook Road is a 1/2 mile beyond the A.T. on the right). This route has an easier climb to the summit with a steep decent, or the option of visiting the pond without hiking to the summit. No matter which approach is taken, be sure to bring plenty of drinking water as there is none available on the trail. This is a very popular hike. Remember to wear the right shoes!

EUSTIS RIDGE: Scenic picnic spot overlooking Flagstaff Lake, Maine's 4th largest lake, and the Bigelow Mountain range. Located approximately 1 mile south of the village of Eustis on Route 27.

GRAND FALLS: Classic horseshoe falls on the Dead River. Access via Kibby Camp Road off Route 27 north of Eustis (6.9 miles north of Stratton Village near the King and Bartlett sign on the right hand side of the road.) or by canoe or snowmobile trail. The ride to the falls is a slow trip over approximately 20 miles of dirt logging roads. It is recommended that reference be made to a forest service map, as there are numerous logging roads off the Grand Falls road.This road is definately not recommended for low riding vehicles.

"THE HORNS" TRAILS: The Horns can be approached from Cranberry Peak or directly from Stratton Brook off Route 27. Located at The Horns Pond, is a camp site with tent platforms, water and bathroom facilities. A strong hiker can reach the summit and return in one day, however, if time allows, an overnight trip including Avery Peak would be ideal. Elevation gain to the west peak is 3,100 feet.
