A forested trail leading to a seeping cliffside spring.

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.

Little upper canyon hike. It is possible to go down quite a bit further than the .4 miles. 1mi — 2h 00m
