    Default Moody Hill/Crystal Mtn



    Wondering if anyone has been up to Moody hill and/or Crystal Mtn recently. I'm not finding many recent excursions via a search.

    I don't recall anyone commenting upon any recent visit. Moody / the quarry should be open. Crystal's gate is closed. There is perhaps 1/2 to 1 mile of "Crystal Mountain" trail available before the gate happens.

    Michael, last I was up at Crystal - to the gate - it seemed folks were making new trail up the hill before the gate. Will you be working on that? Could there be a legit bypass around the land lease land to stay on public to get to the peak?

    People are probably just trying to find a way around the gate. I have heard that motorcycles and maybe some ATVs have been successful. I also heard that years ago there was an alternate route that was shut down and destroyed. Last I talked to the FS they had no interest is making a bypass. My club does not adopt Crystal Mtn so we will not be working there, only on Moody.
