Crystal Recreation Area Trail is short trail through old growth timber that passes by a spring, follows a creek for a short distance, then head up a short incline through the timber. From there the trail wanders through the timber, back down to the creek, crossing it just below a small waterfall. The trail begins just behind campsite #5.The forest service had a number of trail markers identifying varous species of trees.

Crystal Rec area trail is a nice addition to a wonderful secluded fee camping and picnic area. A great hike for kids while you barbeque dinner. The camp sites do not have water or electricity, primitive only. Nice little area.
