More about this marker. This natural spring is accessible via a dirt road (Forest Road 46N19) that splits off from Clear Lake Reservoir Road from the north. Follow this dirt road SE until you get to an open, grassy clearing. The dirt road literally disappears in front of you. If you have sharp eyes, you'll see the T marker standing out among the grass. do not drive too close to the marker or you will into the spring. The spring is just a few feet from the metal T marker. Look at my posted picture looking at my car from the marker. That's a safe place to park. Although the property where this T marker and spring reside is on private land, the landowner has given permission for visitors who are following the Applegate Trail route through this area. Be safe and courteous of the land!
Regarding Applegate Trail - Pothole Spring. It should be noted that there is apparently a pioneer child's grave just to the south of this historical marker. It appears on a topography map. I walked to the exact coordinates of the grave site but could only find a couple of small, round rocks sunken into the muddy earth. Any other sign of a grave has been lost.
