Points of Interest

1. Trailhead

Park along the road.

2. Overlooking the Crocker Glacial Cirque

Looking down into the cirque and down the trail.

3. Crocker Mountain Summit

Wooded summit that offers some views. This mountain obviously supported it's own glacier at one time long ago.

4. South Crocker Summit

At 4,010' there is a short side trail that leads to a rockier outcrop with better views of Crocker Mountain. Leaving this summit look carefully for the herd path that leads south towards Reddington. If you lose it make sure you use the gps track in this guide to find your way.

5. Summit of Reddington

This 3,984' peak seems to be heavily logged. Although it is under 4k feet it is on the NE 111er's list because it was once believed to be over 4k.

6. Logging Roads

Follow the track down logging roads until you reach the dirt Carribou Pond Road again. Use the track for guidance.
