Wah Wah Mountains
Camping and Coordinates
There are unimproved camping sites located at the base of Crystal Peak. While there is no permanent water supply (make sure to bring enough with you), there are plenty of wood scraps you can collect from the area’s Pinyon-juniper woodland in order to make a campfire. If you camp out here on a clear night, you will have extraordinary views of the stars.
The start of the hike is off of Crystal Peak Road — this unpaved road can be rough, but is usually passable to passenger cars given good weather. The hike starts on the east side of the peak, but as close as you can get to the peak in your car. Park here. The hike takes most people about two hours round-trip. Fall, winter, spring and very early in the day in summer are the best times to hike the peak, as summers can be really hot. Precipitation is rare, but dust storms are common in the area.
