“A calm forest trail with access to Mt. Massive.”— Tyler Prince
Start up North Halfmoon Lakes Trail on an excellent, gradual trail with few rocks or roots. In about 1.5 miles weave along the creek to your left and through some willows before coming to a junction with the Mt. Massive/North Halfmoon Trail. Turn right for Mt. Massive
or stay straight to remain on North Halfmoon Trail.
From here, the grade picks up slightly, but the trail remains clear. Expect some rocks near the lake. Finish at lower North Halfmoon Lake, about 1.3 miles after the turnoff.
