Water comes up in 3 places and flows down across the trail. All 3 springs are surrounded by stone cairns. Elevation is 1200′.

“The water comes right out of the ground; there is no pipe. The spring can be shallow at times, so bring a smaller container to pour into a larger one. My friends/family have drank this water many times since 2005 without boiling or filtering it. No giardia, cryptosporidium, or any other ill effects have been noted so far.” – Alexander Staff
