OverviewA relatively small mountain compared to the others surrounding it, and definately not worth an entire trip just for this mountain, however it is a really pleasant hike if you are in the area for larger hikes.
Getting ThereAccess is by way of the Strathcona Parkway that goes to Mount Washington Ski Resort. Parking is at the Nordic Lodge, before proceeding onto the Paradise Meadows Trail. The trail that I took into Circlet was via Lake Helen Mackenzie and Hairtrigger lake, as this appeared to be the quickest route to Circlet, and we were short of time, but you could also make the approach by way of Battleship and Kwai Lakes, and combining the trails to do a loop trip is certainly possible.
Follow the trail towards Circlet Lake, until around 1 kilometer before the lake at a corner in the trail, if you look to your left, you will see a wooden sign that reads "Strata Trail."
Most sources suggest hiking Strata by way of McPhee Lake, which is a small lake next to Circlet, however I took this route on the way down, and I strongly encourage people to take the other route I described, as this one is a hellish bush whack at a terrible angle with plenty of bluffs that you don't see until you're right there. Since there is no trail up this mountain, I strongly suggest hikers to take a reliable GPS.
