Crow Lake Trail is a 13.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Naches, Washington that features a lake and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from February until November.
We hiked Crow Lake Trail intending to pass by Fifes Peak (5800 ft) and stop at Sheepherder Lake (4 miles or so before Crow Creek Lake.) The trail has been washed out pretty bad for the first 1/4 mile. It requires some careful walking next to the almost 13 foot trenches where the trail used to be. The trail continues on the left when the trenches stop and only a few blown over trees remain. The hike was pretty steep but gradual. This being a horse trail, it was well carved out and marked. Had such a great time staying the night at Sheepherder (4800 ft), I'll definitely be going back and making it to Crow Lake. All in all, we got some awesome pictures of the scenery that made for some great memories. Be safe, take your time and happy hiking y'all.
