"There are several lengthy trails to the summit of Crosier Mountain, but this shorter option takes you through a ponderosa pine forest, past an old mine opening, to several vistas, and to a mountain meadow that is a good turnaround point.
It may be simply a function of the fact that the trailhead
parking can only accommodate about a half dozen vehicles,
but the Crosier Mountain Trail (#931) is a great one for
solitude—not to mention vistas, wildlife, and wildflowers.
Begin by walking through a gate—be sure to close and
secure it behind you. Walk on a gently ascending trail in a
meadow where, among the mountain mahogany and rabbit-
brush, you’ll see locoweed blooming in spring. Loco is Spanish for crazy, and when livestock eat this flowering plant, they exhibit the effects of the neurological damage its toxicity causes."
