A beautiful trail to finish off the journey from Crystal Lake Trail.

Description

This trail is an amazing way to finish out the Crystal Lake Trail, as there are gorgeous views along the way. For those of you wanting to make it to trail's end, this is it. While you'll have to endure another couple hundred foot gain in elevation, you'll be glad you did. For those of you that are not quite acclimated just make sure you take it one step at a time as there are many places to stop and take in the views along the way.

This trail leads to the base of some incredible mountains, so enjoy the scenery! Once you've reached the end, you'll need to return the way that you came to return to Crystal Lake, and the trail that will take you back to your starting point.
