Description

This is a well-marked trail that starts from the fork with the Oak Spring Trail. This waterfall/spring is the most active between the Oak Spring Trail and Pine Canyon. Golden Columbine flowers and an orchid can be found here. Pine Canyon also has the columbine but not as prevalent as they can be found on this trail. This hike is easier than both Oak Spring Trail and Pine Canyon for the casual visitor who is seeking wildflowers.
