Overview Service & Activities
About Crystal Cascades Trail (445) is a fairly easy trail that follows a creek for about 3.5 miles from the Crystal Lake Road to Crystal Cascades and gains 1,000 feet in elevation. Crystal Cascades is a scenic waterfall that emerges from a cave about 10 feet deep and flows for about 100 feet down a stair-step ledge to the trail below. The trail then leads further up and joins Ulhorn Trail 493. Obtain a Forest Visitor's map for information on any travel restrictions. Length: 5 miles. Medium use.
