Hike is easy, provided you do not scramble down to the upper pool. The Falcon Guide describes a primitive trail beyond the pool down to the cottonwood trees. There is no trail. You can scramble up the other side of the rock pool, turn left and work your way down to cottonwood trees the out by a wash, but it's a moderate scramble. All unmarked

Fun quick hike. My dad and I did it on a hot summer day near noon and it took us about an hour. A lot of cool different kinds of cacti line the trail.

This trail begins off the Burro Mesa Pouroff spur about 1/4 mile from the end. It is nearly level for the first 3/4 mile. You end up at a bluff overlooking the spring.
