Lake Crescent - Spruce Railroad Trail
Olympic National Park
The Spruce Railroad Trail offers visitors an easy walk along the north shore of Lake Crescent. The trail follows an historic World War I rail-bed created to extract Sitka Spruce from the area. The spruce trees were used in aviation construction due to their beneficial weight to stength ratio. The railway itself remained active into the 1950's before being abandoned.
