Crane Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Since Crane Mountain is the highest point in south-central Oregon, you might assume that great views are the principal attraction of this hike—and you would be right.

The panoramic vista from the summit, especially of enormous Goose Lake and the adjacent Lakeview Valley, is amazing. But in addition to offering views, the hike travels through attractive forests, features numerous wildflowers, and provides a good but not exhausting workout. Unfortunately, you have to share the trail with noisy motors—but nothing is perfect."
