A small dam traps spring-fed water to create this wetland oasis in an otherwise parched land. From the parking lot, take the 0.5-mile paved level trail to an uncovered observation deck. For a different perspective and route back to the parking lot, hike the not-so-level 0.9-mile dirt trail that loops south past a second viewing platform and then west.
This is an ADA-accessbile site.
Caution: This site can be brutally hot in summer, so take along drinking fluids. For the best view, bring binoculars or a spotting scope. Although you should be alert for rattlesnakes, you’re more apt to see the similarly colored but non-venomous gopher snake.
