Crystal Peak is a high mountain summit in the Tenmile Range of the Rocky Mountains of North America. The 13,859-foot (4,224 m) thirteener is located in Arapaho National Forest, 5.9 miles (9.5 km) southwest (bearing 220°) of the Town of Breckenridge in Summit County, Colorado, United States.
Most climbers approach Crystal Peak from the east, in particular via the Crystal Lakes basin. This approach, a pleasant hike, follows jeep trails until treeline and Lower Crystal Lake. Four wheel drive vehicles can generally make it this far. A trail on the north side of the lake takes climbers to Upper Crystal Lake, where gentle scree slopes provide access to the ridges north of the summit.
