Crystal Falls Walking Trail

crystal falls




Crystal Falls is a very short walk from Highway 500 but from the mall you can make it a bit over 8 km and it is pretty when you get there. The old Duley Lake Road starting from White Wolf Snowmobile Club can lead to Crystal Falls but you have to cross a couple of rivers with long gone bridges. This is used a lot in winter as an unofficial snowmobile trail so is packed hard enough to walk or snowshoe.
