Comments
Comments: Did this hike as an out and back (a giant "Y" shape), but probably would recommend doing the loop on Alltrails bc this was a LOT of up and downs. After parking at the lot, walk on the dirt road and about 10 minutes in you will see a cairn on the right-this is the trail. There is not a visible sign at that point. This is the AT (marked with white blazes). Hike into the campground intersection is easy. After that, pretty steep up to South Crocker. Then went on the Reddington "trail" which has intermittent marking of pink or orange tape. Easy to follow. Down South Crocker and up Reddington. When you get to old logging road, turn left onto the logging road, and you will find a cairn about 200 yard up the road and to the right. The peak is marked with a "handmade" sign. Then retraced back down Reddington and then up South Crocker and then again proceeded down South Crocker and up North Crocker. Down North Crocker and up South Crocker, and finally down South Crocker and back.....this is why I would recommend the loop...Fun day, but longer than expected.
