Parking/Access Road Notes: Getting to the gate on Caribou Pond Road was a non-issue in my ordinary Mazda 3 sedan, just keep it around 20mph and be on the lookout for a few largish rocks to avoid. 3 other cars at the parking area at 8:30 on a Tuesday

Comments
Comments: I took the AT from Caribou Pond Road up to South Crocker, over to North and back, then the bushwhack over to Redington and back, then back down the AT. The downside of this route is having to climb back up S Crocker from Redington but after reading how overgrown the bushwhack to the logging roads sounded it seemed like the better option. The Redington bushwhack is really mostly straightforward. Someone has been placing ribbons occasionally along the way, and there are several cairns or logs blocking the path at key turns. Trail was mostly wet from last night's rain, so I got pretty soaked in the overgrown areas, but no substantial mud along the route.
