Trail Overview

Crane Mountain FSR 2108 is a gravel forestry road through the St Francois Mountains in the Fredericktown Sector of Mark Twain National Forest. It is an easy-going gravel road, with two small creek crossings, shallow water collection spots, sections of course gravel/rock, and gradual graded hills. The road features the typical washboarding, mounding, and erosion rutting to be found on a forestry road.

Difficulty

The road is easy going, but does feature two small feeder creek crossings, that in the event of heavy rain could have a small amount of water in them, there is also a few small water collection spots, and the main hill climbs show signs of erosion rutting that could become worse between maintenances if the season was very rain filled.
