Mt Crane and Crane Pond

7.4 miles
1154 ft elevation gain
4 hours R/T

A pleasant loop hike. First section up to Crane Pond with four generations of Meyers–yay Grandma!–even though over some steepish bedrock. We met a three generation group coming down, in which the father was carrying a duffle bag (no shoulder straps) with tent and sleeping bags. Wow! Why were they hiking with canoe paddles?

Took ~3 hours to the top, but then we took the steep way down (with two anchored ladders) and returned surprisingly fast to the trail head.
