Intermediate - Crescent Mountain

This is a 9 mile round trip, out-n-back hike with 2,200 feet of elevation gain/loss.

Trail Description: The trailhead is a short distance beyond the Lava Lake Snow Park off of Hwy 20 just past Hwy 126 & Hwy 20 junction.  The trail starts by descending down to a footbridge that crosses a creek before starting the climb to the top.   The top of Crescent Mountain (5,750 ft.) offers dramatic views of Mt. Washington, Three Sisters and the remains of a forest fire lookout tower.

Be sure to bring the 10 essentials, plenty of water, sunscreen, a snack for on top of the mountain and anything else you may need.

    I'm pretty sure I can make this. But if I am not there by 7:30 or there abouts go without me. I know the trail and trailhead and might attempt to catch up.

      Hi Nicholas ... I saw the hike as a suggestion, so I went ahead and posted the hike. I just realized I was not posted as the Host, but I have corrected this so I now appear as the Host. This occurred since I pulled the event from the Suggestion Tab.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
