Please rate this spring

Called “Sweetwater Springs”, it’s located 1.7 miles NE of Calico Ghost Town in Southern California’s Mojave Desert.  It’s good water, but slow flow.

    does anyone have anything else to provide about this spring? is it legal to take from? in the picture the water looks stagnant and green, is there a place where the water flows from a rock or something before filling the pond, so one can gather seemingly more fresh, uncontaminated water? also calico was a mining town so id be worried about possible contamination. even though that was awhile ago its something to consider. this drive will take me many hours so without more info im hesitant to go thanks

    I stopped by this one. First, it’s at the top of Doran Canyon, which is a hardcore jeep road. Not conveniently located at all. Also, it was just a stagnant pool when I was there. Not sure if it was just the season, but don’t rely on this one.

    Beautiful hike though. More info on the hike here –
