Comments: Only saw two other hikers and their pup all day. We hiked the extra .2 miles each way to check out the Crocker Cirque on the way up to South Crocker. It was a beautiful spot. Loved the views from the trail on the way up South Crocker, as well as from the lookout. No views on the summit of North Crocker. The trail down South Crocker on the way to Redington is narrow but easy to follow. I wouldn’t consider the “bushwhack” up Redington to be a bushwhack at all. It was more a trail and very easy to follow. The snowmobile trails looping back to Caribou Pond Road had a lot of standing water and soft, wet ground. Plan on your feet being wet for the last few miles.
