CANCELLED Crocker and South Crocker Mountain Hike

June 17 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

This Saturday’s Next Century Hike will be up the Crockers in Maine’s High Peaks, via the Appalachian Trail from Caribou Valley Road.  Crocker Mountain’s two 4000-foot peaks are the 4th and 11th highest mountains in Maine, We are planning to spot one or more cars at the A.T. crossing of Route 27 where it leads north to the Bigelow Range, and start from Caribou Valley Road which is about 2 miles south of the A.T. crossing.  We’ll meet at the A.T. parking area (left side of Route 27) shown below at 9am on this coming Saturday, June 17th, at 9am.

From the A.T. crossing of Caribou Valley Road, we’ll head up to South Crocker (2.1 miles) and over to Crocker Mountain (3.1 miles) before descending the remaining 3.1 miles to the car spot on Rt. 27.  This hike should take approximately 6 hours depending on the weather conditions.  This is a very strenuous hike with a total distance of 8.3 miles over rough terrain with elevation gain.

You must RSVP to come along on this hike so we can contact you if the itinerary changes, and to coordinate ride sharing and car spotting.  To RSVP, please use the form below, contact us through social media, or contact us directly (info@matlt.org or 207-808-2073).  This should be a good one!
