just a heads up------26 is up on a ridge....

so there's a small spring.....

since you are going in spring---it should be running but might be hard to find...

its been years since ive been up there and cant place it off the top of my head, but root around and you should find it.....

28 is on a creek so water is no problem there-----the "better" non horse sites are across the creek.......

Yea, there is a spur trail to reach 28. It's about 100 yards to a creek crossing, and then keep going another 50-100 yards and the camp sites are down the hill on your left next to a creek.

Thanks for the reply

Do you remember if spring at site 26 is an ooze from ground or trickle from rocks?

I think an ooze from the ground but it's been years since I've been up there...

Think like turning on a faucet at a small flow...

It ain't much....

Its a small ooze actually--but it is usually there
