PCT hikers on the lengthy Desert Divide depend on small springs as their only source of water. One of the most attractive of these is Cedar Spring, situated on the desert slopes east of the Divide beneath a fine grove of incense cedars and black oaks. The best time to visit is in the spring, when the water is reliable, the temperatures are moderate, and the wildflowers are in bloom. This is a popular destination for Boy Scout troops.
