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.
