Trail Overview

This trail heads up a canyon where a short hike would lead to 8-mile springs. There is plenty of dispersed camping spots and fire rings. Choose whether you prefer a view or some lovely shade trees. The only way to get to the springs would be a hike up the canyon; the trail does not reach them with a vehicle, but there is room to turn around before the end, and it appears the best access is from the riverbed itself. As one gains elevation, they are rewarded with sweeping views of the valley and the area's rock formations. The lower section of the trail is easy and graded with two lanes to pass. The upper section past the powerlines turns to easy rocky two-track One bar LTE cell service fades in and out.
