Crystal Peak Professional Review and Guide

"Although you drive 36 miles to reach Crystal Peak, you’ll see it long before you arrive. Unlike the surrounding peaks, Crystal Peak is a white conelike peak that stands out like a sore thumb. From a distance the peak looks as though a lot of plant life is growing on its slopes.

Closer inspection reveals that the dark spots are actually huecos, or pockets in the rock, making the hike up Crystal Peak both unusual and spectacular. Once on top of Crystal Peak, you can see out into Nevada and the high peaks of Great Basin National Park to the west. To the northeast you see the Wasatch Range, and due east the Tushar Mountains, the second highest range in Utah. The barren desert surroundings take on a unique beauty."
