Curt Gowdy is located just 24 miles west of Cheyenne, Wyoming and 24 miles east of Laramie, Wyoming. Take State Route 210 (Happy Jack Road) to County Road 106. Curt Gowdy State Park has seven sections of richly varied landscape, flora and fauna decorate the foothills of the Laramie Mountains. The beautiful attractions within Curt Gowdy State Park are near the crossroads of two major interstates, I-80 and I-25. There are three reservoirs, Granite, Crystal and North Crow. Granite offers excellent rainbow trout and kokanee salmon fishing as well as space for water sports. Crystal, the smallest of the reservoirs, has shoreline fishing for brown trout, rainbow trout and kokanee salmon. Also, enjoy boating while at Crystal (15 horsepower limit). North Crow Reservoir is located 5 miles west of the Headquarter's Building. This is an unimproved fishing area. There are no picnic tables, water supply, comfort stations, and is day- use onlyvery natural. There are a limited number of reservable campsites at the Tumbleweed and Camp Russell campgrounds. Aspen Grove campground is next to a free public horse corral for those visitors who would like to camp with horses. Within the park is Hynds Lodge, which is listed on the National Register, and an amphitheater available for concerts, theater productions and many other cultural activities. The area is one of low-lying meadows, gently rolling hills and massive steep granite formations. Wildlife abounds and bird watchers will be treated to variety of non-native birds.

Nice trek. There is no official trail or loop called Crystal Lake Reservoir Loop. Instead, this course uses a few trails. Suggest getting a map at headquarters or studying carefully the map at Volin TH - that's where you'll want to start/end this beautiful easy to moderate hike.

I really like the trail - it has some great scenery and the trail is very well maintained. It was just a little rough because it was really windy! On a nice day, I'm sure it would be a 5 star, enjoyable day hike.
