Lime Point springs a leak
This is essentially walking along a rough road that is FR2260 on the Teapot Mtn quadrangle. Take the first left (few hundred yards) and hike up a small hill and down to a fork (fork is FR2260 and FR319). Take the left fork and hike the road up over a hill and switchbacks down. You will see, as you go down the switchbacks, the cottonwoods at the spring down at the bottom. Stay on the road, go slightly uphill, and look for a slight road going left (west) to the spring. A road/trail takes you down to the spring, which consists of a tank and a concrete well.
The hike goes past an old stone house, stone cattle walls, and through diabase, pinal schist, andesite tuffs, and some quartzites. Taking the left, instead of going right to the spring, takes you up the hill to some old prospects.
If you look at the topos, it is possible to link this hike into Wood Canyon or White Canyon(upper,lower). Those hikes would involve hiking along cattle trails and good orienteering skills.
