This is a beautiful wooded mountain ride/hike with occasional views of Cedar Breaks. It also includes navigating fallen trees and small streams and all things mountain trails have to offer. The Crystal Springs Trailhead 2023 intersects with the Blowhard Trail 2047 which runs East to West. The actual Crystal Springs Trail runs north and is only about 1.5 miles down the mountain side to a small valley that intersects with Potato Hollow Trail 2050. This continues north on Potato Hollow which climbs a small hill and offers gorgeous views at the top. The next mile of Potato Hollow Trail you descend down the other side of the hill with the first 400+ feet being a pretty steep descent. Make sure your saddle is secured with a back cinch so the saddle doesn’t slip forward if riding horseback. The next mile of potato hollow is more gradual decent and drops into a 4WD road. You can continue on Potato Hollow through Ashdown Creek and ends at Rattlesnake Creek. To continue the loop take the 4WD road west and traveled two miles along the canyon with a view of Flanagan Arch. The road drops down a hill and at the bottom is a grassy area with a stream, fence and cattle guard crossing. This is also the west end of Long Hollow Trail which is about 1.8 miles on a lovely wooded trail with a small stream crossing that brings you back to the Crystal Springs Trail. PARKING TRAILERS: There are three places with enough room to park trailers. The trailhead is one mile from the highway up a one-lane dirt road. There are a couple of spots that vehicles could pass one another, and when I drove out I passed a full size SUV that drove up the hillside giving me enough room to pass, no problem. There is a possibility you’ll meet another vehicle that will have to back up to allow the horse trailer to pass. The trailhead has a large parking area with enough room to turn around but driving out is a little steep, you will need 4-wheel drive with a loaded trailer. The first spot to park is just after you turn off SR14 on the right side. If you park here you will have to ride one mile to the trail head, which actually adds two miles to your ride there and back. There is another place at the top of the hill not far from the trailhead where a couple trailers could park but you’ll have to back in.
