Cinco Tinajas Professional Review and Guide
"At Cinco Tinajas a fairly major tributary of Leyva Canyon cuts a deep, narrow canyon through a tough layer of igneous rock. Rain that falls anywhere in the watershed around the Sauceda Ranger Station (about 8 square miles) funnels through the steep gorge. Tinaja means “large earthen jar” in Spanish and is often used to name natural pockets in creek bottoms that hold water after a rain. In this case, Cinco Tinajas means five of these natural pools."
