Trail Overview

Crystal Geyser starts out with five miles of challenging, cratered terrain. Once you reach Salt Wash Road, you'll follow an easy, winding trail around a small powerline and eventually reach a county-maintained road that leads to the geyser. A staging area at Waypoint 02 provides a central point to go out and back on each half of the trail.


Difficult at the beginning. Easy and moderate the rest of the way. Stock SUVs should have high clearance, skid plates and at least one locker. Impassable when wet. Dusty.
