Lion Spring Campsite

This shady, secluded site is in a lovely location a quarter mile down a side trail that branches off from the Springs Trail on Pine Ridge. 

The campsite has a large, sprawling chert rock outcrop and a lovely spring, located at the base of the outcrop. The spring is quite reliable except in serious drought years. 

Sada said that mountain lions would crouch on top of the rock and wait for deer to come drink from the spring.
