Arizona Trailblazers Hiking Club
Crystal Point, Frog Tank Day Hike
when Trip Report : July 13, 2019
where Munds Park
the hike     Munds Park has some really beautiful trails. We’ll be hiking in a forest of large pine trees and see some wild orchids, if we’re lucky. The hike will leave from Dave’s house and will proceed to Odell Lake and hike up to Crystal Point, then onward to the 240 Trailhead on FR240.
    From here we’ll take the 240 Trail to Iron Springs Trailhead and hike on to the Frog Tank Loop. Once we are at the Frog Tank Loop we can opt for the longer hike version by going around the Frog Tank Loop, or opt for the shorter version and just take a left at the junction on out to Janice’s Place.
    There is not much elevation gain in this hike, maybe 500 '. This hidden gem is a very scenic trail with a bonus of being close to Phoenix. See Map.
