The Mill at Crystal River

The remains of Crystal Mill are a great reminder of Colorado’s mining history. The mill rises majestically over the Crystal River and provides a great photo opportunity during the wonderful Aspen fall colors. It is located on a very rough four-wheel-drive road and can be accessed through either Marble or Crested Butte. Plan on hiking at least a little as the drive is very dangerous and the sections after Lizard Lake get very narrow and windy as you progress towards the old ruins.
