Thanks Kris (and Tim)! What's the news on the baby front?


My babies are 10 and 12 and I'm not planning on having more, but thanks for asking.

:lol: :lol:

And thanks Greg. Good to hear from you.

Well, I messed up too the first time. Russ had some great beta for the logging roads that kept it simple and straightforward the second time around. I'll post it when I get it.

Congrats Pam. It will be a while before I'm anywhere near the end of this list thus not much research. I assumed all the peaks on both 4K lists were all trailed. Apparently not. :)

The rest are.

For Redington, think Owl's Head. No worse. No where near as long or steep (no slides!). A bit trickier to navigate due to a ton of logging roads if you do the CVR approach, but not horrible, and the last 1/4 mile on the herd path is super-well defined. The herd path from South Crocker does have a few spots where it's not hard to lose it however.

And certainly not with me :lol:

No news yet, still waiting. I gotta say, with all this lovely weather I've really missed being on the trails :roll: I'm starting to get antsy, I might have to do something local this weekend.

Thanks Joe. Here's the beta we used for the logging roads. Simple and easy to follow. A bushwhack from S Crocker makes more sense if you are peak bagging which should be simple for you but wasn't for me :oops: Although apparently, after reading various trip reports, I'm in good company. :roll:

Anyway here it is: http://adrianpayeur.com/Redington.php

And I have to disagree with Matt, I think it is much harder than Owls head. I've never heard of anyone getting lost on Owls head and there are a dozen or so reports of people losing their way and turning back or barely making it on Redington. But for a seasoned bushwhacker... A peice of cake.

Kris-- the Blue Hills are a decent local hike. I every weekend I can't get to the real mountains. Good luck!

I'm obviously not worried about bushwhacking, driving on, or hiking logging roads.:wink: I've had plenty of practice. 8) I just didn't realize there was a 4K listed, non-trailed peak.

Technically there's two of them. No official trails on Owls Head either right?

And speaking of Bushwhacks I just saw the updates on the blog Joe. Very interesting trips and great pics as always. For a while I thought you might have stopped doing the blog. Glad to see you haven't. I know that stuff takes time but I always enjoy what you post. Nice out of the norm for most of us stuff.

And ill agree with Matt, although it may depend on what time of year you go, the path I thought was as easy as many trails to follow. The logging roads on the other hand...
