Trail shared by Caleb Joyce

Follow a desert mountain spring to a deserted old mining cabin.

Caleb Joyce

Features River/Creek · Views

Description

From the White Rock Loop, you'll head up a wide, loose gravel trail. Around the 0.75-mile mark, you'll come upon the creek where the spring flows down the desert canyon. From here, the trail turns to a singletrack and the trail gets steeper. Follow the meandering trail to the top of the canyon and you'll find an old mining cabin with exquisite views of the White Rock hills.
