Comments
Comments: AT North from Caribou Pond Road, South Crocker-Redington Saddle Herd Path, Caribou Valley Route via Logging Roads and Herd Path

Great hike except for the downpour between North Crocker and returning to South Crocker which is why I added running/standing water to the report. Although my chosen route from Redington back to the Yellow Gate was long, it was a beautiful walk through Caribou Valley, and Caribou Pond is isolated and peaceful. Be sure to go all the way to the right into the summit clearing on Redington to find the small summit sign on the right in the trees. Go to the right of the sign down a path marked by ribbons to find the canister with the trail register.
