Event Details

Come and hike with Tom to the La Madre Springs. This hike follows an old road up a canyon with red and white sandstone cliffs on one side and gray limestone mountains on the other. The trail takes you to La Madre Springs, where you’ll see water for wildlife and a pleasant contrast with the desert environment. The vegetation in the canyon is fairly dense, and with the Pinyon Pine, Juniper, and Scrub Oaks it actually feels like a forest.

Make sure that you bring at least 1 liter of water per person for this hike. This hike will take about 2.5 hours and is rated as a moderate hike. This hike will start and end at the trailhead of the Willow Springs Picnic Area.
