Features:  Several pools flowing into Horse Creek, the main pool has a wooden enclosure built around it and is about three feet deep and the source of the springs. The fire burned most of the trees from the junction with Woods Creek to the springs. The road is suitable for all cars but the many burned trees on the route could become an issue in a wind event.
