Rainbow Springs to Bootleg Spring Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike is a favorite for its solitude, shade, and water. Rainbow Springs and its neighbor, Bootleg Spring, have good productivity and are running even in the hotter summer months, so water is always available. There is a small pool at Rainbow Springs, not enough for swimming but enough to get some doggie legs wet. Most people have never heard of Rainbow Springs, so chances are you’ll be alone on this hike.

The moderate eleva­tion makes this area a great in-between-seasons area. When it is a bit too hot in the lower valley but too cold at higher elevations, you and your dog will find that this area is usually perfect in temperature. Under foot and paw: Gravel and dirt."
