A glacial cirque called "Crocker Cirque" is located between the main summit and the lower summit of South Crocker Mountain. Crocker Cirque contains a small pond and can be reached via the Appalachian Trail.
Brooks on the east side of Crocker Mountain feed the South Branch of the Carrabassett River, which flows into the Kennebec River, and into the Gulf of Maine. The northwest side of Crocker drains into Stoney Brook, then into Stratton Brook, Flagstaff Lake, and the Dead River, another tributary of the Kennebec. The southwest side of Crocker drains into Nash Stream, then into the South Branch of the Dead River.

Why visit Maine?
Bigelow is considered the second best hike in Maine after Katahdin, because of its size, challenge and beauty. The reasons can be read as a list of hiking buckets: emerald ridges, deep passes (low point between two peaks) and long two-day climbs (bring the tent). It takes 16.3 miles to climb and cross Bigelow, but if you just want to reach Avery Peak (4,088 feet), the trek is shorter - if not less difficult - 7.8 miles. Many people camp at Avery, which has tent platforms, to better enjoy the amazing views from the top of Lake Flagstaff and the mountains of western Maine.
The best family hikes in Maine are those with swimming holes where you can play. If you agree, head to Blueberry Ledges in Baxter State Park for a long hike with a waterfall in Maine. Here, Katahdin Creek flows over granitic rocks to create natural water slides. Blueberry Ledges is one of the favourite places for people staying at Abol Bridge Campground and exploring Baxter National Park. Well named because of the wild blueberries growing along the trail, this trail is an excellent trail to follow from early to mid-August for the blueberry season. If you will be there with your family at this time of day, I recommend that you get a copy of the book Blueberries for Sal that you can read to your children to extend your trip in a fun way.
