Recreation Conditions Report
The Crane Mountain National Recreation Trail #161 is located east of Lakeview, Oregon in the Warner Mountains. It connects into the Fremont National Recreation Trail #160 - Southern Segment about 0.5 miles west of South Fork Crooked Creek Trailhead.
It runs south through the North and South Warner Mountains and on into California. Some sections of this trail, particularly the north face of Crane Mountain, may not be snow free until July. The north end of this trail is at the lowest elevation and the southern end is highest. An 8.3 mile portion of this trail, south of the summit of Crane Mountain, is within the Crane-Bidwell Semi-Primitive Motorized Area. There are remnants of the old fire lookout at the summit of Crane Mountain, including stunning views.
The Fremont National Recreation Trail, also known as the Southern Oregon Intertie Trail, traverses most of the length of the Fremont National Forest from north to south.
In the north it begins at Yamsay Mountain and makes its way south over Hager Mountain and along Winter Rim to the Warner Mountains where it joins the Crane Mountain National Recreation Trail #161. From that junction visitors can either continue north on the Fremont National Recreation Trail to Vee Lake or take the Crane Mountain National Recreation Trail #161 south to the California border and beyond.
Open to the following uses: hiking, horsebackriding and mountain biking.
The Fremont National Recreation Trail #160 has three main segments: Fremont National Recreation Trail #160 Northern Segment, Fremont National Recreation Trail #160 Middle Segment and Fremont National Recreation Trail #160 Southern Segment.
The northern and middle segments pass near the towns of Silver Lake, Summer Lake and Paisley, OR and terminates near Lakeview, OR at Cox Pass. The Southern segment is along the crest of the northern Warner Mountains.
Local conditions vary widely across the seasons and segments. Due to forest fires and beetle-infected areas in past years, some segments near Winter Ridge area may be hard to distinguish. Other segments are outstanding but very primitive.
