Trailhead in Deschutes National Forest
An unseen spring trickles water to the fenced pond. Sagebrush shrubland borders the pond, and dry forest surrounds the shrubland. It's a long way to the next drink, so this site draws wildlife like a magnet.
- Cinder-surfaced roads leading here are often washboard-rippled and compel slow speed.
- Water from the pond is not suitable for human consumption, nor does the campground have water.
- Since there is little shelter to hide your presence, keep some distance from the water and control your pets.
