Crystal's Secret Gorge
by HAZ_Hikebot

Overview: The Lost World... Absolutely amazing destination, located deep within the San Carlos Indian Reservation. Truly a hikers playground with a gorgeous river canyon, numerous large waterfalls, deep-water swimming holes, alcoves, a 3C technical slot segment (can be bypassed), and a beautiful large grotto area. Enjoy!

Destination Overlook: Lat. 33 degrees/26'/37.17"/N & Long. 110 degrees/16'/12.15"/W
