Interesting forestry demonstration plot at the Hwy 36 trailhead. A couple of miles north (about 1/8 mile before crossing 28N83) the trail intersects remnants of the 1870s era Dutch Hill Ditch. You can save about 4 miles of hiking and 600 ft of climb by starting your trek at Stover Spring Campground, a primitive site at N 40 deg 17.07 min, W 121 deg 20.66 min; it can be reached by a logging road that starts from Hwy 36. Domingo Spring itself is about 1/2 mile east of the north trailhead; there is also a campground and picnic area at that site, along with fresh, cold water from the spring at a convenient faucet.
