Crescent Lake in the Winema National Forest

Crescent Lake, off the Willamette Pass, is accessed in Crescent Lake Junction. The turn is clearly marked. Turn onto the dirt road and travel in a southwest direction ... you might want to check road conditions with the USFS. There is much of interest out here: hiking trails, Diamond Peak Wilderness, mountain lakes: Indigo Lake is, as the name implies, quite beautiful. June Lake possessing its own charm. We offer a travel guide for the route that leads from Crescent Lake to Oakridge, Oregon. Brad calls it the Crescent Oakridge "Inback" Loop. The guide begins in the west, so you must reverse the route if you begin from Crescent Lake. Be sure to check for road conditions before beginning.
