Hero: McCain Spring
small-sr Icon

The now-dry McCain Springs at the trail's western end was once Fish Creek's headwater. The trail is lined with tall ocotillo cacti, which make for a stunning drive. Snuggled back in the rocky hillside at the trail's end is a great camping spot large enough for five vehicles near the now-dry spring. This is mountain lion country, so understand the risk.
