    Can’t figure out from the details here if you can drive to this spring, or if you have to hike the 7 mile trail. Anyone?

    I tried going here on 10/14/13, but there is a locked gate that prevents you from going to the location. Maybe you can hike past the gate, but with heavy water bottles it doesn’t seem realistic.

      “Realistic” = For human use.
      Not sure a drive-in spring in contemporary pet-crazed SoCal is a safe suggestion

      According to the gate schedule posted above
      – Site is officially closed at night
      Also convenient web maps
      show it’s suburbia with nearby development

    I went a couple weeks ago. The ranger said it was a 6 mile hike from where you park. But really, it depends where you park. We drove all the way up to the locked gate, and walked from there. Its about 1.5 miles to the spring.

    And it doesn’t look like anyones keeping it up or drinking from it. There are a few different spots where the water comes out. And an old rusty pipe that if you turn it mud pours out. I did fill up a water bottle at the cleaner spot underneath a wooden platform. Tasted good and clean, but “tickled” my throat. Not sure if thats a good thing haha. I wouldn’t recommend drinking it based on that. I’m sure if it was kept up it could be a great drinking spring. at the site there is a historical informational sign.

    pH: 7.5

    Please post more about this spring if you go and check it out. I will also post pictures.

    Has anyone taken any photographs of the area approaching the water source, and the ‘water outlet’ in particular? It would go a long way toward giving a clear idea of what there is to deal with insofar as HOW to prepare to funnel the water into a container.All things considered, it may be a good idea to boil the water once you get it home. I may be genuine clean spring water, but there are still wild-life parasites to take into consideration. I’d appreciate any information or comments.
