Comments
Comments: Just under 10mi. round trip including the small road walk past the gate. AT is about 1/3 mi up to the right, marked with small carin, however growth is getting high so be on the lookout. Gorgeous day aside from the passing shower or two. AT from CVR all the way to Crocker is in great shape. Herdpath for Redington is off to the right on the summit/viewpoint spur on South Crocker. Pretty hard to miss as there are numerous orange flags hung off of the trees where it diverges. Redington is hardly a bushwhack anymore,in fact this 'trail' is in better shape than a lot of what I see in the Whites now, and nice that its very padded with little erosion/rocks. someone has come through recently and trimmed some of the smaller branches out of the path. As long as you keep your eye on the path on the ground, very difficult to lose. Just keep an eye out when finding the trail off of the old yellow marked boundary trail and on the logging road you meet up with. Lots of cairns/logs guiding the way however.
