"The lightly used Ward Spring Trail is a relatively easy trail physically but requires some modest route-finding ability, earning it a moderate difficulty rating. Some maps do not show the trail. It starts in the western foothills of the Chisos Mountains near the east edge of Burro Mesa and then climbs gradually but steadily to a spring at the base of the high ramparts of the upper Chisos Mountains."
