The Olympic Mountains and Crescent Lake
This glacially-carved lake, hidden among the northern foothills of the Olympic Mountains, offers plenty of day activities
and stunning natural beauty. Its waters present clear views almost 60 feet deep. It is the only place where rare Beardslee
“blueback” trout live. Rent a rod (and a canoe) from Lake Crescent Lodge to hook a closer look. Pole rental $8/half-day, canoes
from $20/hour; olympicnationalparks.com.
