Home / Mojave bicycle-camping trips / 2009, Spring: Mojave National Preserve / Day 8: Live Oak Spring hike from Mid Hills campground, Mojave National Preserve 67

Live Oak Spring is one of the springs in the northwest Mid Hills that I haven't seen yet. Today is my chance; this should make for a good hike.

It will be good for my knees to be off the bike and just walking for a day. It will also be good for the eyes. One sees more when walking compared to bicycling. Equally important is that one sees more while bicycling compared to driving a car.

I bring six litres of water and drink 4.5 of those. I'll also eat two Clif bars and one Larabar. 14.1 hiking miles with 2585 feet of elevation gain (and drop).
