A warm spring cemented into a small pool, located in an extremely isolated desert wash. warm-spring source was cemented-in many years ago with a simple mixture of cobbles and concrete. This source has been diverted downhill to a stock corral, where it obviously waters cattle. The spring source itself is not visible, as it has been completely cemented-in to form the small pool. The water is not hot, but rather warm. The pool is also small, not really suited for bathing. Instead, it is yet another interesting spring, diverted for human (or animal) use. The surrounding country also boasts some fascinating mining history.
Located at about 4,500 feet in elevation, this site can become quite cold in the winter and should be avoided during and soon after storms. In addition, much of the land you will be passing through is private property. Please respect this, even though there are few signs indicating private ownership. The warm spring is undeveloped, save for the small concrete pool, and is in extremely isolated, rugged country.
