Pumpkin Springs

Mile 213 - Pumpkin Springs

The spring, because of mineral-laden water and constant evaporation, has created a travertine dome or bowl. The bowl looks like the sides of a gigantic pumpkin. The spring water held within the travertine bowl is lukewarm at best and is less of an attraction than the aesthetic beauty of the "Pumpkin" itself. Tapeats sandstone platforms and ledges, coupled with deep water in certain places, make this a fantastic spot for cliff jumping.
