    Default Cresent Lake Grayling

    Son and I did the annual hike into Cresent Lake and the fish did not disappoint. Stayed at the cabin for the weekend, caught some giant grayling! Weather kicked up and white caps were on the lake. Forced us to fish in the stream instead but, still a great time. Hiked out in the rain. I guess it was a good tune up for our upcoming DC0001 caribou hunt. Also stopped at Quartz on the way home and chased some trout. Great fun with the dollies.

    Looks like a nice trip for you. I have the Crescent cabin and the saddle cabin booked in September for a hike out Carter Lake trail and I'm looking forward to it. I remember hiking up to Crescent Lake with my daughter 25 years ago. She was little then, and I had to keep lieing to her that the cabin was just around the corner to keep her moving or she would have given out on the trail. We still laugh about that today when we go hiking together. "Its just around the corner"

    The hike is about 6 and a half miles one way. It took us 3 hours going in and 2 and a half coming out. You can also take the Carter lake trail. I've never hiked it before it's only 3 miles but very steep.

    We rented MT Bikes in Soldtna and hiked/biked the trail. The ride back was fun and thank god I took it slow. There were som trecherous tuns that wukd have ended badly if our group was going to fast. If you do decide to do this make sure you get a bike with shocks....
