Leroux Springs has long been an important source of flow for the Rio de Flag, but military expeditions in the 1850s led to its flows being captured for drinking water.

Join us on Thursday, July 6th for a guided hike of Leroux Springs with Shannon Clark. Shannon, a retired Forest Service civil engineer, has worked with the springs for the past 40 years in monitoring flows and operating the related drinking water systems which serve some Forest Service facilities. Hikers will learn about the spring and its current condition.

We look forward to seeing you for this interesting hike! Meet at 5:30pm at the Leroux Springs trailhead. Directions from Flagstaff available here.
