This is a great little hike to get out of the heat if you don't have air conditioning, like me. There were an abundance of wildflowers in bloom: lupine, roses, monkeyflower, pussytoes, several in the aster family, geranium, iris, starry false solomon's seal, paintbrush, skyrocket, and a vine with red trumpet blooms (on the left side of the start of the trail). The ferns are lush, the birds are singing, and there is water in the springhouse (use a good filter). Be sure to look all around the highest spring for the pictographs and petroglyphs. There are bees and wasps around the spring, so be careful if you are allergic. This place gets alot of traffic on the weekends, but during the week it is not busy.
