On day 2 of the Vegas excursion, after completing Turtlehead and Calico Tanks I still had a bit more sunlight so I opted to head over to Willow Spring Trail Head and do the La Madre Spring Trail. I originally wanted to do the White Rock Hills – Willow Spring Loop, but due to lack of daylight opted to just do La Madre Spring.

This is a fairly easy trail along what use to be a two track but since it is in the La Madre Mountains Wilderness area it is now closed to motorized vehicles. Nice steady climb of about 700 feet from the trail Head to La Madre Spring. There was good water from the spring and about at least a quarter mile downstream from it. If you are looking to see big horn sheep they say this is the trail with the best chances, I didn’t see any though. I finished this hike just prior to sunset so I decided to call it a day.
