Crystal Creek Falls

Crystal Creek is the drainage from Crystal Lake and during high water conditions loves to wash down big logs and other debris. 
During snow-melt this waterfall sends up the spray and can sometimes still be moving those logs downstream.  The falls can be seen from the Crystal Lake Trail and there is a bit of a way trail to get a better look.  The waterfall drops down about 125' spreading out into a fan 50' wide fan.

Depending on how dry the summer is will definitely influence the volume of water flowing down this waterfall.  When the lake above is lowered to a point the drainage will all but cease to flow.
