The Crystal Mill, or the Old Mill is an 1892 wooden powerhouse located on an outcrop above the Crystal River in Crystal, Colorado, United States. It is accessible from Marble, Colorado

Whether you love fly fishing, kayaking, or exploring untouched nature, the Crystal River is the perfect spot to spend time. Additionally, the Crystal River provides clean drinking water to 7,000 people. The river and its banks also house diverse wildlife, including rare orchids such as the fairy slipper, Bald Eagles, bighorn sheep, and various species of trout.

The National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act helps preserve certain rivers and streams with outstanding natural, heritage, or recreational features in a free-flowing condition for the enjoyment of present and future generations.

I support Wild and Scenic designation for Colorado’s Crystal River.
