    We just found out this spring has a TDS of 4! An old timer told us it was only a TDS of 1 just a few years ago. Pretty delicious clean spring water!!!

    I just hiked Mt. Wildcat…mainly so I could stop at this spring. The tube was very low and almost dipping into the stream below it. Still the water served my hike both up and down.

    I have used this spring for meany years. The water has very good taste, sweet. The pool under the pipe had a fish in it one summer.
    The pin on the map is in the wrong place.
