“Singletrack climbing through postcard perfect mountains to an alpine lake.”— Leslie Kehmeier
The steepness of the slope alternates between long mellow and short punchy sections. There are also a few segments where the trail tip toes along narrow singletrack below some rock walls. It's very scenic through here - just watch the trail ahead.
The route then crosses an avalanche field (sometimes covered in snow) and continues to climb a bit more before crossing a bridge to the oppposite side of the creek. From here the climb ramps up a bit until you reach the Crescent Lake valley. It's mostly open through here with a few cool sections of flagged pine trees. As the trail levels out, the views get really big.
From here to the lake, the route rolls gently downhill across a moraine to a bridge at the bottom of the lake.
