Directions from Nearest Address

From Payson:
Start out going NORTH on BEELINE HWY S/AZ-87 toward E FRONTIER ST.
Turn RIGHT onto AZ-260 E.
Turn Right across from the Post Office entering Tonto National Forest.
Follow road to bathroom facilities at the end of the dirt road.
Head towards the river, cross it, and then follow the old logging trail (which looks like a wash out towards the rim, up river).

Approximately 1 mile into the hike you will come up to a sign which points off to your right slightly and says, “See Spring 1/2 mile”
The trail will cut across the river and past 2 or 3 rock fire pits. Approximately 30 yards past this is where the spring makes its birth. The water is coming out of limestone and has a slight aftertaste along those characteristics.

I know folks that have been drinking from this water for over 30 years and speak highly of its taste and the beautiful hike along the way. As of today, 1/24/09, I can verify all these claims.
