Description

Ward Spring Trail has little if any traffic. It has Chihuahua vistas to southwest and Chisos to east. The rock dike formation is prominent once half way point is reached. Along the trail there is one area that is loose and might require more balance but the trail has no drop offs or big obstacles along it. In the springtime you should notice wildflowers. If attempting this trail in summer water is a must.
