Description

Crystal Lake is a 2-3 acre alpine lake. This is a relatively short trail, but it is steep and loose in places. It’s a wonderful place to picnic, to swim, or to bring light chairs and a sleeping bag to watch the night sky, especially the Milky Way.

Short Run: Where the 0.4 mile trail starts, there's parking for 2-3 vehicles. Additional parking is located 0.75 miles down the road in both directions. Driving north or south around Juniper Lake there’s additional parking areas that also have pit toilets.
