Old townsite, all the buildings are gone, but several foundations remain.

There is no trail, but Glenn Springs townsite is rich in century old history. Old foundations still exist, but none of the buildings do. Across Glenn Draw, was the Mexican Glenn Springs. The old cemetery can be reached by taking the Black Gap 4X4 road across Glenn Draw and taking the first left.
