Hellsroaring Canyon Trail is a short trail that serves as an ideal looping option for those coming back from Crypt Lake. The trail makes a better return option because it is a lot steeper than the Crypt Lake Trail and a little more rugged. The trail starts at an intersection .5 miles from the beginning of the Crypt Lake Trail. After a brief section along the lake, the trail follows the Hellsroaring Creek upstream for a short period before beginning a sudden and steep climb to meet the Crypt Lake Trail again.
