This is a sacred spring revered by many eastside sierra nevada locals, outdoor enthusiasts, and savvy rock climbers traveling along the 395/yosemite corridor on their way to the next climbing crag.  please respect it and if you see trash…pick it up!  Drive toward the yosemite entrance from lee vining, while looking to your right…eventually you will see a grove of aspens…it will be very obvious due to the contrast the grove gives on a mountain slope full of sage and pinyon pine.  Turn right on a dirt road…exactly across the HWY from a camp ground road.  go up the hill about 30 yards, drive through an open gate and the spring will be on your left.  If you start to make your way up the steep tioga pass grade…you’ve gone too far.  If you find yourself at the yosemite national park entrance…you’ve gone way to far.
