Lake Crescent is about half an hour west of Port Angeles, Washington, and is a sublime destination for Olympic National Park visitors. This glacially carved lake averages about 300 feet in depth and covers about eight square miles, and about 7,000 years ago became separated from neighboring Lake Sutherland following a massive landslide. Many hiking trails ranging from mellow to strenuous are nearby, and if you’re there on a warm(er) day, consider taking a dip in Lake Crescent’s refreshing waters!
