We took our jeep and enjoyed every part of the trip. Our lab was enjoying it also and at the mill people were very friendly and taking pictures.

Can be an interesting, dangerous trip. But one of the most popular photo op places in the area. It was never a mill,but a generating plant for the area.

A perfect setting in our beautiful mountains! Rough and rocky road but well worth it. Crystal City is just a short walk, not much there, a few cabins and old buildings. Be sure to stop at Slow Groovin' BBQ in Marble, excellent food!

We took the trouble to hike to the mill and were very glad that we did, as the people driving in don't see a lot of the picturesque scenery on the way. Unfortunately we kept having to step off the road for vehicles coming through,...More

Crystal Mill is a perfect fall hike from Mid-Sept to Early Oct for maximum fall color. Getting there can be a little tricky, so do your research ahead of time. We actually drove the entire way to mill in a All-Wheel Drive Nissan Rogue...however, I...More

We hiked to Crystal Mill during the peak of the leaves turning. The walk is pretty easy and the last mile was ruined by TMR Inc last year. TMR Inc posted a sign to stay on the road and then they proceeded to spray paint...More

It's picture perfect. Plan ahead. Your need a jeep with clearance and 4 wheel drive. Hiking or mountain biking could be options too. Some puddles along the way. The mill is somewhat maintained from time to time. The town of Crystal is a joke, just...More

Beautiful 4.5 hour hike round trip. First 2 miles steep then easy ups and downs. We saw a bear on the way picking berries, what we wouldn't have a chance see if we would be driving there, that was worth a trip itself! Mill is...More

A rough drive over a rocky road (not gravel) had the driver frazzled, but after getting there it was glorious. A perfect afternoon. We navigated through countless photographers all vying for the perfect angle -- but maybe they're all perfect! Four of us basked in...More
