Description

The Crystal Lake Trail is an old road. Starting at near Frying Pan Lake, it along a wide right-of-way for a powerline. The trail passes the Its Gotta Go Trail and after 200 metres passes by Crystal Lake on the left. After 450 metres you will come to a junction with another old road. Continuing straight will take you out to Peacocks Lane. At the junction the Crystal Lake Trail enters the woods on the left.

The old road travels through a mixed forest until it comes to another junction. Turning right at the junction will take you out to Ski Hill Road. Turning left will take you through the woods between Fisher and Crystal Lake. Eventually the old road will come out to the Zoo Trail near Fisher Lake Drive.
