Comments
Comments: Bushwhack is really a series of herd paths that are easy to follow. Walk off of the viewpoint on S. Crocker and make a quick U-turn to your left, facing 215 Degrees, you will see a path. Follow this path down to the Boundry swath (marked in yellow paint). Before starting down the boundry swath, make note of where to turn back up to S. Crocker on your return, the herd not as obvious from this side. Turn right and follow the swath for maybe 200 yds to a cairn marking a second herd path on the left. Follow this down to an old logging rd and turn uphill to your left. The cairn marking the trail to the top of Redington will be on the right in less than 1/4 mile.
