Description

This trail begins directly across the road from a small pullout on a curve 0.3 miles / 0.5 km down the road from Cape Royal. It meanders down a forested ravine and ends where a chest-high boulder rests under a large overhang. The spring is on the cliff side of the boulder.

Further down the cliff. Though not marked on the map the trail is very clear to this point and it is possible to go a little way further without to much difficulty.
