Trail Description : Cliff Spring Trail

The Cliff Spring Trail begins directly across the road from the Angel's Window Overlook, which is a small pullout on a curve in the road about 1/3 miles north of the Cape Royal parking area.

The trail is approximately 1 mile round trip and there is very little elevation change along it.

The Cliff Spring Trail meanders down a forested ravine and past a small Anasazi granary. The trail ends where a chest-high boulder rests under a large overhang. The spring is on the cliff side of the boulder. Do not drink the water because it is likely to be contaminated.
