General Description

Crescent Mountain trail is a moderate to difficult 8 mile trail at an elevation of 3,500 feet. Hikers begin dropping down toward Maude Creek beneath a peaceful old-growth forest. After you cross the creek, the trail switchbacks for a mile through a shady forest, before emerging into open hillsides carpeted with wildflowers in the spring. Unobstructed views of the new and old Cascade Ranges greet you as you reach the top.

Directions from Sweet Home: Travel east on Hwy. #20 for about 41.8 miles. Turn left on Forest Road 2067 (Lava Lake.) Continue 1 mile and turn left on spur 508 and drive 0.5 miles to the trailhead on the right.
