    I have gathered water from this spring a few times now. The flow is really slow – it takes me at least an hour to fill around 50+ gallons. But the water tastes great and has been feeling good to drink. I would love to get details on the pH, tds, etc at some point!

    Thanks for the great directions! Went there yesterday, 6/2/16 and filled 30 gallons. Flowing nicely, clear, cold, delicious. Thank you, Mother Earth!

    This is an incredible spring! I’ve been drinking from it exclusively for 2 years now and has been wonderful. About 45 minutes from Chico but the drive is beautiful and there is plenty to explore while there. Highly recommend!
