A sprawling, shallow, grassringed lake better suited for waterfowl and sipping quadrupeds than feetsoaking hikers, Crow Creek Lake is a wildlife lover’s paradise. And a hunter’s paradise too—so if it’s solitude you seek, best stick to summer. The way is long and steep, and so is the return. But the views of the multispire Fifes Peaks, the deep glacier-carved American River valley, sun-dried Nelson Ridge, and snow-coned Mount Rainier are marvelous. And so are the high-country elk that browse fl ower-popping meadows along the way.
