Three of us are planning to hit Stratton Bald this September via the Wolf Laurel trailhead. Is this fs81 road pretty easy to locate? Is there water sources neer the top? Plenty of fire wood near the top? Is the trail head easy to find? Thanks

Get Tim Homan's book and there are detailed directions in it: Hiking Trails Of The Southern Nantahala Wilderness, Ellicott Rock Wilderness, And The Chattooga National Wild And Scenic River You don't need four wheel drive or a high clearance vehicle to get there, but it is helpful. If there is a lot of snow on the ground, then that's another story... There's a spring at Stratton Bald and another one at Naked Ground. Homan's book has details on both. Hope this helps. Have fun. Don't forget, it can be really cold up there at that time of year.
