How to Get There

Easy Walk, Interesting

I didn't know what I expected when I arrived at sofa springs. It's naturally carbonated drinkable water all over the ground. Animals love to swing by for a drink, so it's a good spot to watch.

This trail is overall very easy to hike, but the 9.1mi distance at a 10,000ft altitude is what makes it a bit of a doozy for people who aren't frequent hikers.
