    First Intro & a question about Lye Brook

    I do not see a specific location for introducing myself to the forum so I'm going to wing it.
    I have been hiking, mostly in New England, for 45 years. I love getting away and resetting as frequently as I can. Most of my mileage has been in Vermont. I have been fortunate enough to have hiked a bit in the rockies too but there is no place like home. The one absolute I have learned in all my years and miles of trail is I have a lot to learn.

    Looking forward to trading information with the group.

    As a matter of fact I am hoping someone can start me off with some trail intel. I am getting ready to hike a section in the Lye Brook Wilderness. The last time I was on the Branch Pond Trail it was flooded north of Bourne Pond due to beaver activity. Have any of you been through the area recently? I imagine that by now if the area is still flooded that a trail has been worn around the area. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Nick, Thanks for the welcome and the response.
    It is near Stratton. Funny you should site a Backpacker article. I have been interviewed three times by Backpacker contributors for essays about that area. My first experience backpacking included the loop she talks about in that article and I returned to do that every year for many, many years. The article unfortunately is a little dated now (6 years).

    It's been about 3 years since I last did it and I was hoping to find out if the trail near Little Mud is still under water.
