Olympic National Park is packed with things to see and activities to enjoy from wildlife watching to whitewater rafting. The Park offers excellent biking and hiking trails which wind through spectacular natural landscapes, such as the Olympic Discovery Trail and the Spruce Railroad, which hugs the north shore of Lake Crescent along an old railroad bed.
Lake Crescent is surrounded by a variety of both self-guided and guided hiking trails, some of which meander through the lowland forests and creeks, while others involved a bit of climbing. Favorite hiking trails in the Lake Crescent area include the Marymere Falls Trail, the Fairholme Campground Loop Trail, and the Moments-in-Time Trail.
Lake Crescent offers an array of water-based fun, such as kayaking, canoeing, boat cruises and fishing. Kayaks and canoes can be rented, and the lake provides some of the best fishing in the Pacific Northwest. The large, deep lake has incredible visibility and is home to the one-of-kind Beardsley Trout, and Crescenti Trout, which can be caught under strictly catch-and-release rules.
