Big Spring
Big Spring flows out of the canyon wall about ten feet off the ground. It produces a large amount of water and typically flows year-round. It is located just downstream from campsite 12 and is the turn around point for hikers coming from the bottom up. The spring is on the right side as you are going down canyon and difficult to miss.
