Comments: Hiked from route 27 up and over Crocker, South Crocker, and up to Redington, then back along the same trails. Great hike up to Crocker and South Crocker on the AT from route 27, a couple downed trees here and there, and some small patches of snow near both summits, but pretty easily passable on foot, some traction might help but I didn't use the snowshoes I brought. The connecting trail from South Crocker to Redington however is in pretty rough shape, lots of overgrown trees in the path (where the path is even visible, only pink/orange tape to mark the trail, I took several wrong turns and had to double back to find the correct trail. If you are attempting this trail it may help to use a compass to stay going generally South West (plus/minus maybe ~15ยบ) from the South Crocker summit, there's another trail I mistakenly followed off South Crocker with Yellow blazes that heads pretty much straight North back towards Crocker parallel to the AT, but to get to Redington you need to take a sharp left turn off this trail in the first ~1000 m or so from the South Crocker summit. Unless you're looking for an orienteering adventure wouldn't really recommend this trail, took me about 2 hours to find my way from South Crocker to Redington and back, although the rest of the hike on the AT was great.
