This is an almost all uphill climb from the Tucker wildlife sanctuary to the springs. The hike can be strenuous do to the incline. The spring is seasonal and a little hard to get to. The views on the way up are amazing. The trail is a fire road with no shade.

If you ever get a chance to take this don't take the Tucker chair at the beginning of the Tucker trail you turn left and go down to the Creek and follow the Creek up Hill It is extremely hard and unmarked That is covered by trees boast of the way but still gets hot and lots of poison oaker but the water crossing and the waterholes are extremely full with all the rain we've had being an unmarked trail means you enter at your own risk but for me and others like me it is well worth Lots of hard claiming

Its a nice hike that offers a good medium for conversation with your Hiking Buddies/Buddy.

The trail isn’t even a hiking trail, its an offroad trail. I couldn’t even tell it was a spring when I reached it. It was completely dry, and not worth it at all. I ended up hiking up another 3 mi or so to find a nice view
