Crane Flat Lookout Trail

Crane Flat Lookout Trail Professional Review and Guide

"An easy yet remote climb leads to Crane Flat Lookout, where an enticing panorama of Yosemite National Park’s upper reaches and other Sierra Nevada await. Still manned during times of high fire danger, impressively built Crane Flat Lookout sits on a large plain that beckons a snowshoer to venture to every corner to see what view’s in store. The route’s popular with cross-country skiers as well."
