Hiking Back in Time

Crystal Mill is located in the heart of the Rockies just outside of Marble. First constructed in 1893, the mill generated compressed air used for silver mines throughout the region. Fun fact: The Marble mined in this area of the state was used in the construction of the Lincoln Memorial.
