The history of Alcove Spring stems back from when emigrants, namely the Donner Party who named the spring, stopped by on their journey and camped here near Independence Crossing of the Big Blue River. They would wait for water levels to drop so that they could ford the river and continue on their voyage. Much like today, they found the landscape to be breathtaking and especially enjoyed the beautiful spring formed in a unique rock formation, which flows into a pool below. This easy trail leads you to this spring which is only a quarter-mile from the parking lot. Show more
