Comments
Comments: We summited the South and North peaks of Crocker Mountain very easily. There’s a quick steep section coming up the AT to South Crocker just after the tent site junction, but it levels out for the majority of the climb after that. We came back to South Crocker to pick up the bushwhack over to Redington, which is more of a herd path clearly marked with orange and pink tape. About halfway down South Crocker you’ll come to a cairn for a sharp left, and then it’s easy sailing down to an old logging road. Left of the road, and then a right onto the path up Redington. If you opt to take the logging roads out, bear right at a junction about a third of the way down Redington. As of 7/15 there was a long striped ribbon to mark the way. Logging roads are recommended for a gradual descent with views and lots of wildflowers. Overall 10/10 day!
