Trail was awesome! I gave it a 4 only because it was difficult to find. The trail head was not well marked and the registration points were into the trail a bit. Once you find it, you've got a real gem. I suggest going in from the Lenny road entrance and if you are doing the loop, it is a bit confusing at the end - which is the power house- there are 3 ways to go, just take the road out. This is not well marked at all .. Had to use google earth to get out :/. Overall it's an AWESOME trail !! Great views , some up and downs but nothing terrible. Great easy hike. Would be awesome for mountain biking or trail running !!!!

Challenging and fun. A little crowded on a Sunday morning, especially in the beginning, but very much worth doing.

Crane Mountain Loop Hike

Hiked this with 3 people and two dogs. The views were great but it's very steep with a rock face towards the top of the blue trail. I don't recommend the blue marked trail for dogs! Too steep, we probably would have made better time without the pups, however the recommendation said dog friendly. The way we went we didn't see any caves or the pond... Trail points aren't marked very well... It was hard to follow up top. I definitely want to hike this again with out the dogs!

This trail is great, but would be more fun taking multiple days to complete it. One part of the trail was pretty much under water, this was fairly close to the end/beginning of the trail (depending on which trail head you start on). Overall very beautiful.

The trail was steep but not too challenging for my 8 yr old. The view was nice but the fire tower made the trip worth it! Climbing to the top of tower was a lot of fun.
