|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||South Crocker Mountain, Mt. Redington, North Crocker Mountain, ME|
||Appalachian Trail, herd path|
|Date of Hike:
||Friday, July 24, 2020|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||We had seen some trip reports from people stating that Caribou Pond Road/Caribou Valley Road may be closed for logging, but we were able to drive right up to the gate on Friday morning with no problem. Plenty of other people parked there in the designated spots and along the side of the road. There is a very small sign at the crossing of the AT going up towards South Crocker that says CPR/CVR is closed for logging on weekdays from July 15-Dec 31, but it's possible that sign is from last year (the staples holding it to the board are fairly rusty and there is no year listed), as we didn't see any trucks on the road or other signage. |
||Dry Trail, Standing/Running Water on Trail |
|Water Crossing Notes:
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Lots flying around but not really biting |
|Lost and Found:
||We did this hike as an out an back from Caribou Pond Road/Caribou Valley Road. The AT up to South Crocker and North Crocker was easy to follow. Nothing super noteworthy - some standing water on the trail in a few spots. |
“Bushwhack” to Redington was fairly straight forward, and we did some planning with maps/compass, GPS, and the Maine Mountain Guide. Based on other reviews and the description in the Maine Mountain Guide, we didn’t run into any issues finding the Redington summit.
