Dripping Springs Professional Review and Guide
"This area is dotted with historic mines and stone cabins. Stay clear of the Gold Nugget Mine, which is still active. Dripping Springs has a stone cabin and terrific Native American petroglyphs. This trail starts easy and gradually worsens. The last mile before Dripping Springs is challenging and requires some backroad driving experience. High ground clearance and good articulation are needed to drive up a couple of steep, rutted banks and squeeze through a narrow rocky canyon. The last part can be hiked but it is strenuous. Many roads crisscross the area and it’s easy to get lost. GPS is highly recommended. You need not get all the way to Dripping Springs to have fun. Serious four-wheelers will want to take the more difficult exit route after Dripping Springs. Dangerously hot in summer. Flash floods possible."
