Much easier than expected  Sucess!

Only took two hours and seven minutes from the closed gate before the metal bridge at the end of Caribou Valley Road. The herd path is now flagged with orange and pink strips of plastic and starts just to the right of the summit overlook on South Crocker and while it is not as broad as a standard use trail, it is definitely well defined. From South Crocker this mountain is most assuredly no longer a bushwhack. The herd path does cross one logging road just past the col between the two mountains but the trail is marked with cairns where you get on the logging road and get off of it, in a similar manner to the cairns on Caribou Valley road where the AT crosses over. You have to walk a bit to get a view from the summit and the chap I spoke with while I was there on the ascent said a canister was present, but I didn't see it while I was there. There were at least ten other people heading out to Redington on the Saturday I visited, with more just visiting the Crockers.

From Caribou Valley  Sucess!

Followed a network of old logging roads and then a herd path to the summit. The way is well marked with cairns.

perfect weather  Sucess!

Perfect NE day. Despite reports about the route being tricky, the trail was very well marked with cairns and arrows (made from branches). This was one of the easiest 4000 footers I've done as you start from 2100 feet.

Return to Redington  Sucess!

When I hiked through this area on the AT I did not take the side trip for Redington. So, after 8 years I'm back.

Came down the old logging road and camped out. Nice hike- in the 10 or more miles round trip I saw no one else once I passed the AT crossing. Took spanking new foot path to the summit.

Interesting Hike  Sucess!

An interesting hike through an area that had appearently been recently logged. There was a blown over tower of some sort on the top. Get good directions if you plan to hike up as the route is a bit confusing.

Mount Redington  Sucess!

Climbed with the Crockers via the Appalachian Trail from Caribou Valley Road. An easy bushwack from South Crocker marked with orange ribbons that wasn't difficult to follow. Decent views from the summit before heading back down the logging road.
