Mountain Biking Crescent Lake

*****   Add a review
#15 of 64 mountain bike trails in Alaska
#3,674 in the world

The trail alternates from forest to meadow along Crescent Cr and eventually begins long, gradual grades that climb up 1300’ in 3.5 miles. Spruce forest give way to Birch & Aspen as the trail drops into the Crescent Creek Canyon and then on to Crescent Lake. A trail continues on around the southern shore of the lake but is very primitive and not maintained.
