This is a popular trail, and for good reason.  There
is a lot of history along the way and Garden Valley will
be especially lush this spring when all the Mesquites fill
in.

It is a fairly easy trail and for those interested in a
little something extra try a little mini loop over to
Second Water Springs.  Its the site of an
old
mining camp and is quite secluded and picturesque.

About
halfway down the hill into
Second water canyon you may spot a faint trail heading
right across the ravine.  This trail will take you
across the ravine and will
contour
around the gentle hillside through some open areas
with ample signs of wild cattle.  About halfway to
the springs it will kind of die out, but just continue to
contour and you will come to the creek bed and Second
Water Springs stands out as
the
very lush, green area.

To return is a little bit of a bushwhack, but well worth
it.  Just go down stream in the narrow rock walled
creek bed all the way till you hit Second Water trail at
the bottom of the canyon. Just before you get to the trail
you will encounter some large Elephant grass.  Don't
give up here because the trail is hidden just on the other
side of that tall grass.
