Taming Coues
by HAZ_Hikebot

Overview: The Ash Spring Trail leads north across Cima Creek with its riparian forest of sycamores, cypress and fir, to a picturesque old homestead site shaded by large ash trees and watered by a perennial spring. The riparian habitat bordering the stream and surrounding the spring provides good birdwatching, while Coues white-tailed deer, nearly tame from frequent contact with humans, are regularly seen in the area as well. Beyond Ash Spring, the trail continues to the old Greenhouse Road. Turning right, the road returns to the Herb Martyr Campground.
