Description

Crystal Lakes Trail is an 8-mile hike in White River National Forest that will take about 8 hours to complete with Fido. If you go in June though September, wildflowers will be in full bloom as you cross the alpine meadow at 10,400 feet, making for a truly beautiful hike. Fido will also appreciate the creek that criss-crosses the trail along the way, providing lots of opportunities for him to cool off along the way. Directions: From I-70 take Exit 203, Frisco/Breckenridge, and travel south on HWY 9 through Frisco and to Breckenridge. Continue 2.3 miles south on HWY 9 past Breckenridge and turn right onto Spruce Creek Rd (County Rd 800). Take left turns at the forks for approximately 1.8 miles until you come to the Spruce Creek Trailhead. If you do not have 4WD you can park at the trailhead and walk up the road OR continue driving and at the first junction turn right onto Crystal Creek Road (FDR 803). This is a 4WD road that will take you to Lower Crystal Lake. Motorized travel is prohibited beyond Lower Crystal Lake.

    MISSING HUSKY "Forrest Lee"

    Red & White siberian Husky with blue left eye and brown right eye, wearing a brown & yellow harness, neutered 7 1/2 year old male. He is very friendly to all people and other animals.

    Lost on 1/14/12 on the descent from Quandary Peak. He has been spotted three times since then in the vicinity but the people didn't know he was lost at the time.

    He responds to squeaky toys and will come if called by name. He has a microchip.

    If you have any information about Forrest, please call (303) 960-7390 or (303) 669-5221.

    Thank you kindly.
