The loop was a good experience!

we did this loop on 7/19/17 and although the views were limited the physical challenge was great especially to the summit of S. crocker. The hike over to N. crocker was not terribly challenging or time consuming. the bushwack over to Redington was clearly marked. its easy to find the trail just keep walking past the summit outlook on S. crocker and look for the orange tags. the trail is very narrow in places with some blow downs to climb over but it gives you the feel of really being out in the wilderness. the climb to redington is gradual ( which after the crockers i was grateful for

This loop from through the crockers and a bushwack from S. Crocker to Redington does not offer many views compared to other mountains in the area. The bushwack from S. Crocker to Redington is easy to follow however there is no trail maintenance, therefore, you may encounter blow downs and narrow trails. The hike did challenge me physically especially to the summit of S. Crocker. The trail to the Logging roads is grown in during parts of it which causes difficulty to see where you are placing your feet however there was not any dangerous spots. I kept looking up to see where the trail is cut through the tree line. The bushwack is not a long distance before you hit the logging roads. The logging roads were a great hike offering many opportunities to see wildlife and pick berries.I recommend returning through the loggging roads back to Caribou Valley Road

Great, tough hike completing the full swing of South, North, and Redington. The trail from South to Redington is rough stuff, but easy enough to follow with frequent compass/GPS checks - keep an eye out for helpful colored tags on this leg.

South Crocker seemed harder. Decent hike but they are right about limited views. Better summits are out there but if you hike for fitness, it's a good workout.

The Crocker's are tough, whether you hike northbound or southbound on the A.T. The Crocker Cirque Campsite sits in a glacial bowl, though, and is a nice break site or overnight site if you make this a two-day trip.

It a fun hike up two of Maine 4000 footers. Views are not great. But it is worth checking out, especially if your peakbagging in the area. The trail is not too steep especially when approaching from the north at the route 27 trail head. Saw a female partridge and four of her brood near the peak of south crocker. Pretty good look at the top of Mt. Abram from south crocker as well. Good slack pack about 12.4 miles.
