Very nice path, the top is definitely worth the long hike. We were walking slowly so it took us about 1h30 to reach the top. Very nice view not crowded. We did it in the winter and it is very nice.

The ground was frozen but exposed for the first 2.5 miles of the trail, then turned to about 6 inches of hard crust. My wife used crampons for the top section and I used snowshoes. Traction devices are a must for the final push to the summit! The snow crust became thicker near the top, but didn't seem to get deeper than 12 to 18 inches. Took us about 5 hours with our dog. Thanks to the couple we met returning from lunch at the resort's summit lodge, who took our photo. Beautiful hike on a clear day for the views. We can't wait to return in the summer!

Done this twice. Each time in the winter. Very hard but perfect for a day hike. 2:15 up and 1:45 back. Skipped the eyebrow trail each time which is now a regret. Micro spikes were necessary.

A much better approach to this hike would be to begin at either Lincoln or Appalachian Gaps and sticking to the long trail ridge. Hiking up (or down) the ski area is a chore and, as some of the other reviews noted, difficult to route find. It’s also tough on the knees coming down.

The exception to that would be to hike up and down the castlerock troll road which is a nice way up and down from the ridge.

11/17/18 definitely challenging with lots of snow!!! Finished in about 5 & half hours... Grateful for Coopers lodge to “warm up”

Killer winter Hike. Most definitely will be going back to do more hiking there! I highly suggest this hike to anyone looking for a solid day hike with great views at the top!

Enjoy!

What a fun trail to hike in the snow and ice-wear your micro spikes! The summit is amazing and getting to slide down in some spots was a blast!!

It is very difficult. Having said that, I highly recommend it. You will want to go back down after a quarter mile. Don't do it, keep going. You will be rewarded. Take the Adam's Apple trail which will be obvious when you see it, then summit The Chin. I would climb/hike this again in an instant. I did not take the trail back down since I had family waiting for me at the bottom.

I am finally getting around to posting a review of this trail. Hiked this about a year ago on Oct 15, 2017 & it still rates as one of the more relentless hikes I’ve done in New England. You’ll have to exercise some climbing skills especially near the top. Going back down especially in wet weather may be tricky. My knees still ache just thinking about it. That being said - well worth the effort!

Great hike up to enjoy the fall colors. Went up eye brow and down the AT, eyebrow wasn’t a must do and wouldn’t be a good trail to descend. Clear day up top on the fire tower, views were stellar- snow on top made it even better. Took longer than expected due to icy conditions but beautiful hike, another great 4ker.

As most have pointed out, this hike is very easy for the first 1 1/2 mile. It definitely gets tougher though! The last half mile (as of 10/19) was very icy. It made for a do-able, but challenging ascent to the top. Make sure to dress in layers, as the top of the mountain is significantly colder and has high winds. With all that said...the view is worth it!

A friend and I went on this hike hoping to see pretty foliage but realizing we were a little too late and most leaves were on the ground. She is a more avid hiker than I am, I typically stick to more moderate trails. Looking at the reviews people said it was pretty decent until the very top so I thought I’d go for it. Needless to say this trail kicked my butt, and hers too, but I struggled the most. The last quarter-mile is intense like people say especially now as it’s covered with ice. But even the mile before that is pretty much straight up with lots of rocks, mud and fallen leaves, even some patches of ice. So I think we hit the trail really the latest time in the season before it gets kinda dangerous. You definitely need micro spikes to get up that last quarter mile with all the ice. But overall it was an adventure is hike and Cooper’s lodge with a nice place to stop and rest and even a great place to spend the night if hiking the Appalachian trail.

One of the best hikes And trails! I have ascended via hellbrook at least three times and every time is different. The view on the top is stunning especially if foggy!

Great hike, the last 200 yards I stopped, too steep for the shoes I had and did not want to take a chance on falling. But I will be back to get to the Summit.

Magnifique randonnée que je recommande! Sentiers bien balisés et vue imprenable sur le sommet des montagnes environnantes! Wow!

While it may not have an alpine zone like its neighboring peaks, the Crocker-Redington Loop is a very beautiful hike. After a short road walk, you begin ascending steeply through mixed woods up the AT. After passing Crocker Cirque Campground, you start climbing straight up steep rock to the ridge, while the climb may be difficult, the views from the two talus fields are exceptional. The Bigelows are clearly in view across the valley. The summit of South Crocker has a nice ledges with an outlook to Sugarloaf and Spaulding. The out and back to North Crocker is quite steep and not too exciting. North Crocker is wooded but has a nice view spur off the back. Redington is not as bad as everyone says, the herd path off the summit is very well defined, shortly after leaving South Crocker, you’ll see a cut boundary line, take a right and follow it to a cairn, then take a left onto the herd path. Shortly after the col, you’ll hit a logging road, take a left and look for another cairn. You should be able to easily follow the path to the summit. The top has a sign, beyond the sign there’s a short spur to the canister. Inside is a summit log. When you descend the summit, you’ll see a split (you probably missed it on the way up). If you want to do the AllTrails Loop instead of returning to South Crocker, take a right. This leads to an overgrown herd path, which terminates on some short of Snowmobile Trail, follow this to the logging road. Take a right and follow it down. There’s cairns and arrows made of sticks and rocks that point the way to go. You’ll eventually hit Caribou Road which you can follow to the lot. This loop is a little bit of everything and certainly a fun adventure.

Did this trail today and it was quite icy but the view at the top is gorgeous!

I went into this hike figuring that the top would be socked in with fog. I won't repeat what everyone else has described about the challenge of the trail. It is accurate. The final climb did have some ice though that added to the challenge. I hunkered down for a snack at the top behind a ledge. Just as I was starting my descent the fog lifted and I was able to get some really neat pictures. Totally worth the effort. My first 4,000 footer.

steep and fun my favorite trail if you like this one try the long trail north up the forhead

Burrows both ways bc hiking with a dog & wasn’t sure if other trails had tough scrambles. Easy for him. Those 2 miles up get your heart pumping, but good for almost all ages. Hit snow about 40 min from the top. Wasn’t an issue until the Long trail to summit where there was ice. Just pay attention. Nervous for hikers in sneakers without ankle support. Tons of people.
Please leash your dog if they run & jump on smaller dogs & overwhelm them. Plz don’t hike 1:4 with a pack of unleashed dogs during busy foliage weekends!

Road to trail head just got brand new bridges and is better then ever! south crocker has great views of current foliage on way up. Crocker and Redington not so much.

Seems like a breeze, until you’re JUST about at the peak! Didn’t realize there was tram service up there until we redirected some not well-dressed tourists back to the tram as they started making their way down the steep rocky long trail in loafers and polos! Beautiful waterfall stop highly recommended to sit and listen to the white noise of nature.

So let me start of by saying that HARD does NOT do this hellbrook trail justice it is Extremely Hard. It is very challenging especially if you haven't hiked in Vermont before be careful. With that being said, the scenery is absolutely beautiful. You have to scamper, bearcrawl, shimmy up rather large boulders/rocks, go thru areas where there is no visible or actual trailmarkers in some areas and then search for the blue markings that lead your way. I made it to the part where you climb up via some metal bars on rocks that you must pull yourself up thru and turned back because it looked to get more and more treacherous. And let me tell you that the hike back down was no joke ☠☠☠. Be very careful because you really have to shimmy down stuff to get back and words cannot describe the sheer gut renching dread you feel in some areas because there's no good way down. Do NOT attempt this trail if it has been raining unless you have the appropriate gear. Be careful and safe and have fun.

Une vue magnifique au sommet à perte de vue. Un peu plus technique à certains moments entre Saddleback et the Horn mais ça en vaut la peine.

This is a fun hike. There are views from the peaks and a beautiful view heading up to S Crocker from caribou road. This hike keeps you hopping. Never a dull moment. It was fun finding the canister on Redington! I did an out and back and really enjoyed it. Not difficult at all.

AMAZING. Definitely challenging but worth it. Be advised: the hike down the Hamlin Ridge Trail is rugged and strenuous. Also, once you get to the last leg and start dreaming of cheeseburgers, you still have three miles to go :)
Nonetheless it was totally worth every ache and pain.

Fantastic hike! Made it in around 5.5 hours. We hiked this mountain in October and the view was incredible!

Very steep, mostly steps but an efficient way to cut into the AT trails

Beautiful views and pretty steep most of the way. Intersects with the AT for some giant boulder moments.
