“A beautiful trail connecting a campground with Crystal Lake.”— Alan Coles
Family Friendly Easy hiking and close to the campground and lake.
The trail gently climbs through a mature forest of bigcone spruce, Jeffrey pines, sugar pines, white fir, and live oaks. It crosses the Crystal Lake Road then meets with the Lost Ridge Trail #9W25. It then parallels the road to the day-use area at the lake.
This trail is very useful for making easy loop hikes in the basin by connecting with the Lost Ridge Trail #9W25 and Windy Gap Trail #9W06.
