This is a perfect overnighter for beginners or aspiring backpackers that want to shakedown their new gear. The total mileage is approximately 8 miles. However, do not let the short distance fool you; there are two very significant, nearly vertical rock scrambles (both up and down), also throw in a few creek crossings that will make this trek a challenge.
Day 1: Trek 3.5 miles with a moderate rock scramble on a steep talus slope up to the Stone Tower, then down to our campsite at Yellow Springs.
Day 2: Trek 4.1 miles with a near vertical rock scramble after a short visit to The General then a knee pounding descent down the Sand Spring Trail.
Shake off the dust from your backpack; Come out and get your Spring on... you will love this trek!
