Comments
Comments: A great day to be hiking. Temps from 10 to 30 with blue sky and a few whispy clouds. There was 1 inch of snow at the parking area and along the trail, above 3000 feet there was about 3 inches of snow. I carried microspikes but did not use them. I saw 1 hiker today who came up by the Caribou Valley Road to bag North and South Crocker. I bagged these 2 peaks from Route 27. I saw 2 grouse and many types of foot prints in the snow including moose, snowshoe hare, coyote and grouse. No views from North Crocker as it is in a dense stand of softwood. There were views from South Crocker to the east and south of Sugarloaf, Spaulding and Abraham. There were also some views in the hardwood areas along the trail as the leaves are all down under the snow now.
