Grand views await you here, as Crystal Peak stands between the stunning spires of the Norse Peak Wilderness and the mighty summit of Mount Rainier’s northeastern flank. You might encounter elk; you’ll surely see soaring hawks and/or eagles; and if you time it right, you’ll be waist deep in huckleberries on the upper slopes of the peak. If the berries aren’t ripe yet, no worries—you’ll find wildflowers in bloom along the way.
