Crystal Creek Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"The trail begins at 10,400 feet just below timberline and takes you past numerous lush alpine meadows abloom with wildflowers from June through September. Tributaries of nearby Crystal Creek often cross the trail in streamlets and rivulets that a big step will cross and your dog will love to sample. The access to flowing water throughout the hike makes it an ideal hike for a dog, especially if you and your canine companion are hiking on a hot Colorado summer day."
