The iconic Crystal Mill is one of the most photographed sites in Colorado. The mill is accessible in summer and fall on a rough, one-lane, 4-wheel-drive road. If your car is not suited for this kind of adventure, consider hiking, biking, or taking a well-worth-it guided jeep tour. Nearby, is the town of Crystal where you can explore mining-era buildings and visit the general store. Bordered by the Raggeds Wilderness to the south and Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness to the north, indulge in a menagerie of hiking, biking, horseback riding and off-roading trails for every level of experience.
