“Good views and interesting biology.”— Alan Coles
The trail then turns north and encounters several single-leaf pinyon trees which have a much paler green color compared to other pines in the area. This is also a great location to look out over the Crystal Lake Basin to see how it was formed from massive slides around Mt. Islip to the northwest.
The trail passes a seasonal spring and a beautiful field of deer grass before descending back down to complete the loop.
