Quick Facts

Significance to the Trail


Thanks to the Richfield Visitor Center for this information:
"The Richfield Visitor Center is located less than½ mile from a natural spring that has a longtime consistent flow of approximately twelve hundred gallons per minute. Richfield was named Warm Springs by the first settlers for a time. For hundreds of years American Indians (Fremont Culture approx. 800 to 1200 AD) lived near this spring. The Old Spanish Trail participants would have known of this great water source. From September thru April steam rises from this spring and could have been seen from miles around. "
