A buddy and I are considering a mid-November trip to Crescent Lake on the Kenai Peninsula. The plan would be:
Day 1 - Carter Lake Trailhead to Crescent Saddle Cabin (7 miles)
Day 2 - Crescent Saddle Cabin to Crescent Lake Cabin (4 miles)
Day 3 - Crescent Lake Cabin to Crescent Creek Trailhead (6.5 miles)
I have a few questions and would appreciate any insight folks could offer:
- Is the Crescent Creek trail open in November?
- I've read that there is "extreme avalanche danger" along the trail. Anybody know what the scoop is?
- Does anyone know what the likelihood will be that the trail will be packed? We aren't sure whether snowshoes, skis, or boots would be most appropriate.
Any other information folks might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.
