    has anyone found this spring?

    I went up today to find this and had to stop because my Prius wasn’t going any further on the icy un-paved road. 🙁 Oh well. Had I read the directions a little closer, I might have actually found the spot to hike from instead of just inputting coordinates into my gps and charging forth. Maybe when I go back up to Fawnskin I’ll try again. If anyone else find this spring, PLEASE post pics!

    @stephanie, yes! I am actually the one that posted this spring. It’s a bit of a hike, but a nice one at that. the directions are pretty self explanatory, but it’s easiest to find this spring if you get a hold of a map from the ranger’s station or gas station in fawnskin.
