Really nothing special. The beginning was probably the best part.

This is a lovely, short hike. On a summer Saturday we saw no one else on the trail or at the lake. Uphill 1.5 miles from the trailhead to the lake. Beautiful views to the East as you head up. Be sure to take a car with pretty good clearance to make it all the way down the road to the trailhead.

It is summer so for sure it was hot. Great views of the river. Trail starts right at the old wood covered bridge. I hiked in to the lake and back.

Was a beautiful hike. Took my 6 year old and 11 year old. The trail has an excellent grade. We didnt see many people. Once we got to the lake we got to see a beaver swimming around. Had lunch at the lake and hiked in about another mile and a half to s beautiful waterfall. the views a
of the peaks was breathtaking.

Crown Lake Trail

We started out at the Twin Lakes/Mono Village Resort area. Since we were backpacking, we left our car overnight, which is a $10 fee up to 6-7 days. You have to take all food out of your car because bears will get into it and destroy cars! Anyways, the trail up to Crown Lake is very scenic. You get a good view of the Sawtooth Ridge. We camped up behind Crown Lake so we could get a good view of Slide Mountain. The only problem with this hike is that it started snowing with high winds! Otherwise, very scenic, very nice, very gradual elevation gain.

The Point Defiance Trail is a great trail. We started North following switchbacks for a little while. That was probably the most difficult part of the hike. After that, it was pretty much all downhill on the North/West/South sides of the trail. There were enough trees to shade us from the 90+ degree weather midday.

We had to pay 5 dollars to park which wasn't terrible.

Overall, I will definitely hike this again. It's perfect for a quick 1.5 hour hike and a dip in the river.
