Description

Exits a rock wall on the side of Mt. Ogden and flows several hundred yards down hill where it joins Taylor Creek. Flow is very large but varies with snow melt and runoff from the mtn. above. I think this spring may be the source of the “Kristin Spring also listed here. When there is no water in Taylor creek, the spring flow disappears under ground again about a half mile from the source. “Kristin Spring is another mile or so farther down hill from there.

Directions from Nearest Address

From the East end of 27th St. walk up the left or the right trail up”Taylor Canyon Creek”. You can ford “Taylor Creek” if it is running where the spring enters it tumbling down the hilh side to the right and follow the spring creek to its source, or go a few hundred yards further to the “Maylan’s Peak Trail” sign, to the right at the second foot bridge across Taylor Creek. A hundred yards or so up the trail after crossing the bridge, there is a trail forking to the right down to the source of the “City Spring”. This spring is right up there with the “Mt.Shasta City Park Spring” in Mt. Shasta, Ca. IMNSHO. Enjoy! It’s a bit of a hike, but it’s worth it. I carry out 5 gallons at a time in a backpack, and I’m pushing 70, so have at it!

    Hey the temperature of the spring (not source, but bottom spring) was 11 C or 51.8 F, also tested the tds when i got home though (not sure if that affects it) and it is…115, and a ph of 6.6. The water was amazing as always, but i did read that the safest temp is 40 ish F.

    Can I meet up with you to show me where it is? I am having a hard time following the directions – and this is the first time drinking from a spring, so I want to get it right (:
