Description: The trail climbs from Crystal Lake to Grandview Point, gaining 1,000 feet in elevation in 3-½ miles. The trail then follows the ridge another 1-½ miles to West Peak on the Snowy Crest. The trail climbs steadily at a mild grade, with switchbacks making the climb easier. A short trail to VJ Spring leads off to the east about halfway to Grandview Point, and a spur trail leads to a viewpoint at Grandview Point.
Note: Stock users need to take the Stock By-Pass Trail #495 from the Ice Caves Trailhead.
Length: 5.5 miles one way
