Crossing way Trail #3307 is a very difficult 6.3 mile hike at an elevation of 4,640 feet. This trail goes through dry lodgepole pine country, the trail is relatively level for 3.1 miles then climbs steeply into the McFarland Lakes area. The trail then connects with the Pacific Crest Trail.
Directions from Blue River: Travel east on Hwy. #126 for 4 miles and turn right on Rd. 19 (Aufderheide Forest Drive) and follow it for 25.5 miles, turn left onto Rd. 1958 and continue for 5.5 miles. Turn right onto 1958-380 and proceed 0.25 miles and the trailhead is on the right. There is lots of parking for horse trailers and a hitching rail.
