"Up and over a couple times today on our way to Crocker and then back and down the herd path to Reddington. On and off downpours most of the day, so we didn't see anyone the whole day." - JASTA11, Aug 14, 2018
"Tuesday I dropped Kim off in Caratunk to slack pack the 20 mile section SoBo to Flagstaff Rd. at the end of the Bigelow Range and since I had a good portion of the day to kill I decided to go hit some 4000 footers that I hadn't done yet. Headed up South Crocker from Caribou Valley Road. Straightforward hike with a steep climb after the first 1.5 miles. From the summit I decided to head out to Redington first because I still was unsure what the "bushwhack" would be like. " - LGH-Tom, Sep 20, 2016
"NoBo AT Thru Hike 2016. After getting off the trail four days in order to attend my cousin's wedding in Buffalo NY, I got back on the trail late afternoon Sunday in order to complete the 8 mile section from Caribou Valley Road down to Maine 27 outside of Stratton. " - Kim-Stilson, Sep 18, 2016
"This peak was a bit tough to get to. First you drive past Sugarloaf on west 27 and Caribou Pond rd (marked by a hand drawn sign) is on the left. This is an old logging road, so 4 wheel drive is nice but not necessary, though a good amount of height between your vehicles chassis and the ground would help a lot, many potholes, rocks and ditches scarring the road. Follow this til it ends at a blockade (see picture). Park here, continue to walk up the path about .5 miles til you see the AT crossing, fairly well marked (see picture) take a right onto the AT. Take the AT up to South Crocker summit, " - chrisr00d, Oct 23, 2012
"Great day for a hike. Skipped over here from Crocker Mountain or maybe I should say slipped over. There was a lot of snow and ice on the trail this morning. There was a nice view of Mt Abraham, Spaulding, and Sugarloaf from a clearing just south of the summit sign. The clearing seems to be at a higher elevation then the sign fyi.
