Crane Mountain

A beautiful loop hike up Crane Mountain complete with suspended ladders up cliffs and a descent past a mountain pond.

The four-mile loop trail takes you up the steep route up to the top of Crane Mountain’s exposed summit. This route even climbs a tall ladder suspsended to a rock cliff so get ready to climb a bit! Once on top we will eat lunch while we enjoy great views from multiple ledges.  The descent will take us around a beautiful mountain pond of the same name with an option to climb some rock ledges for alternative views.
