Crescent Lake Trail
An 8.3 mile-long less-developed hiking trail following the shore of Crescent Lake. This trail travels mostly though open meadows and brushy areas with views of Crescent Lake and the surrounding mountains the entire way. It is rough, overgrown, and there are creeks that must be forded. Visitation is light. Snow can linger here until early June.
