Crescent Lake Trail

ak

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 4.2 miles


This is an easy 13.2 mile round trip hike that takes you from Cooper Landing up to Crescent lake. It has options to complete the Carter Lake trail system by using the primitive trail around the lake.

On this trip my hiking compatriot and I headed up at 2:30 PM and made it to the cabin by 5PM.  It took us roughly the same time going down.  This trail itself is well maintained and people often mountain bike it.    The only hard part here is the mileage.  The hike is pretty fun.   The trail opens up at times to reveal some nice Chugach mountains, and also has some nice views of Crescent Creek.  This is a pretty neat creek.  Its waters were really swollen this time of year, and it was traveling fast!
