Spring Mountain Ranch is located within the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, beneath the colorful cliffs of the magnificent Wilson Range. The many springs in these mountains provided water for Paiute Indians and later brought mountain men and early settlers to the area. This 520 acre oasis was developed into a combination working ranch and luxurious retreat by a string of owners who have given the area a long and colorful history. Past owners of the ranch included Chester Lauck of the comedy team "Lum & Abner," German actress Vera Krupp, and millionaire Howard Hughes.
Completed this hike yesterday. I started at 11:30am and ended right at 1:00pm. This is a trail I felt safe doing on my own. The foot paths are pretty obvious which made navigation a cakewalk. Found the place where the waterfall is supposed to be, but no waterfall. The weather has been dry with no recent rainfall to make for significant water flow. There were still nice little spots to enjoy the creek. Very friendly hikers out that day. The views are amazing! If I'm ever out this way in the future, I would absolutely do this hike again.
