The Crystal Mill is located above the Crystal River in Crystal, Colorado. It's a wooden powerhouse built in 1892. It is said that the mill harnessed the river adjacent to the mill to power the air compressor housed inside.
The Crystal Mill is reachable only in the summer and fall months; it is accessed by a road that requires a four-wheel-drive vehicle, a sturdy pair of boots, a mountain bike or a horse.
