Ascent Trip Report

I hiked the Crane Mountain loop counterclockwise, going to the mountain first, then the pond. I also summited the 2 unnamed hills by the pond. A very nice area. Micro spikes were needed!

The access road is not maintained in the winter, so once the snow is on the ground, access will be nore difficult.
