This hike requires a lot of scenic driving for a relatively short hike, but sometimes that is just what we’re in the mood for, and just what our couch-potato dogs can handle. However, the trail is close to two other hikes, Long Valley and Sawmill Canyon, making it possible to hike mul­tiple trails in one day. Regardless of how many miles you intend to hike, you and your dog will enjoy this trail. For the people in the group there is an interesting historical aspect of the hike, and for the dogs there are a lot of bushes to weave through and around on the way to a spring. Listed on the National Register of Historical Places, the Mormon Well area was used during the 1700s by Paiute Indians. Later, it served as a stopping-place for pioneers passing through in the late 1800s to early 1900s, and as a holding spot for livestock. Remnants of structures used for ranching can still be seen. Due to the place’s historical significance, removal of artifacts or disturbance to any structures is strictly prohibited. If a day of driving with a short hike is in your cards, definitely pack a picnic because this is a great area for relaxing.
