Cramer Mountain Loop Trail

Cramer Mountain Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide

"If you like water, this loop route should appeal to you. The William O. Douglas Wilderness boasts scores of lakes and hundreds of small ponds and tarns, and this loop takes advantage of many of those.

You’ll find all the great scenery that accompanies lakes, from rich foliage to great numbers of birds and small mammals. There are also a few big critters wandering the area, too, from massive mule deer to proud majestic wapati (aka Rocky Mountain elk)."

Mosquitos and snow in early July. Hikers at trailhead said they were turned back at Sand Lake due to snow so we did loop counterclockwise to avoid snow as much as possible. Cramer Lake junction reached without too much difficulty with snow. Snow and difficult route finding to Dumbbell Lake. Beautiful campsite at end of peninsula on north shore. Swarms of mosquitos all day. Day two found very difficult route finding due to snow on the PCT. Lost the trail at Sand Lake and found Deer Lake by dead reckoning. Overall, a great route but rating compromised by snow and mosquitos which would be less of a factor during late summer.
