The Moments in Time day hike is a self-guided loop nature trail along the shore of Lake Crescent. It  leads through forest, a small meadow and lake shore. This trail is accessible with assistance. 

Much of the forest is lush with very large, old trees in one section, as well as sections with younger trees. This trail is a fun excursion with children which discusses the history of the Lake Crescent area. The main loop can be found 0.3 miles from the west end of the ranger station parking lot. 

This trail was created by a WTA work party and the Klahhanes Hiking Club with signs provided by the Rob Reed and Lena Sharpe Memorial Foundation. This trail was formerly known as the Barnes Point Nature Trail, but is now called the Moments in Time Trail on the National Park Service Lake Crescent Area Trail Brochure.
