California Spring was a water stop on the San Antonio-El Paso Road, 15.73 miles northwest of Painted Caves and 2 miles southeast of Willow Spring another water stop on the old road. Shallow wells were dug for easier access to the water. A pool of water existed at the spring until the 1930s. Now the channel is filled with gravel.
