Description of Spring Creek Park

There are a lot of rocks on the lower side of the creek. Some of these rocks are volcanic tufas, that have a lot of trees, grass and opuntic cacti that has overgrown.  There is also a small stream flowing all through the year and the park itself is full of life. There are a lot of wildlife including insects, lizards, wildflowers that sprout during the spring. Besides, you also get a rare opportunity to see some of rare types of animals such as mountain lions, bad eagles and peregrine falcons. The track winds the canyon for one and a half miles on the southern western sides of the streamway.  On the upper side, the rocks turn to sedimentary rocks. Here you will come across volcanic faults and dikes that show this changeover. The cliff goes up more than seven hundred and fifty feet above the floor of the valley. It rises to a jumble ray of eroded and angled rocks.

When the creek starts well, the stream fades. From here you start coming across stones, dry sand and boulders. However, there are still bushes and trees that grows at the sides, but there are also other places that have bare rock. It is never narrow but it has a length shady and deep passageways. There are turns and twists at times that goes about 90 degrees and there are small chokestones and dryfalls, making it easy to walk. Here you also get small drainages that last will take you more than forty minutes as you hike. From there the creek becomes straight, wide and also overgrown. The streams have several boulders and splits into two with each of the part having narrow parts. Hiking up to this place can take you about two hours.

The narrow parts of the creek have a lot of footprints and there is a clear path running through the lower parts. It gives you a hike you can spend your half day enjoying. The drainage is perfect with elegant tree leaves growing in some sections of the stream way.
