Stratton Open Space is a really cool hiking/mountain biking area. Although smaller, it's very similar to Palmer Park in that its trails intersect at various points so that you can pretty much create your own adventure as you go. It's not terribly challenging: with the exception of Gold Camp Path, all trails are rated either Easy or Moderate. Still, there are roughly eight miles of trails to explore, and many offer some decent climbing opportunities and a few technical spots. All in all, it's a pretty fun place to hike and take in some nature. A word of warning: use caution if you hike The Chutes. It's very popular with mountain bikers, because it's really fun. There are lots of curves, some of them blind. As someone who has both hiked and mountain biked it, it can get pretty scary for both parties on those curves!
