It’s the road that I travel a lot when I go visit my friends in Desert Hot Springs. In between, it host a lot of local history which I have written previously. Today, I will share how the road got it’s name as Old Woman Springs Road.Lot’s of secrets in the landscape. Since our country is young we’re still able to discern the truth of a place and how the history unfolded. Love learning about places like that. I have to say the landscape is almost alien compared to what I move through on a day to day basis. Perhaps someday I’ll get to venture down that road!

I’m a widow, an adventure traveler, and a geek with a passion for local history and quirky roadside attractions. Unfortunately, I had to learn the meaning of “Life is too short” the hard way. I believe by sharing my journey of grief, adversity and rediscovery will encourages those who want to find strength, courage and to overcome their insecurities in order to achieve their hopes and dreams.Now that info…….is secret. ;D Part of the fun is figuring out where it is, all I’ll say is that it’s on a decent road, West of OWSR, and you can’t ride or drive right up to it, you’ll have to park and walk a bit. You can actually google for it and figure it out, but take the time to do a walkaround in that area, don’t make it too easy on yourself. Part of this is that there’s still decent preservation there, and if enough folks get there…well, someone will destroy it, guaranteed. So you’ve gotta really want to go and visit. There’s more neat stuff out there that you’ll stumble across, enjoy!

About the ratings: GreatSchools Ratings are designed to be a starting point to help parents compare schools, and should not be the only factor used in selecting the right school for your family. Zillow and GreatSchools recommend that parents tour multiple schools in-person to inform that choice. As of October 2020, the GreatSchools Ratings methodology continues to move beyond proficiency and standardized test scores. The latest methodology prioritizes student growth through measures of equity and school quality. Learn more

I was born in San Bernardino and good friends with William E Leonard. He told me Dale Gentry, the owner of the old California Hotel in San Bernardino owned Old Woman Springs Ranch in the 50’s & 60’S. Dale installed the old steam engine at the ranch and hosted weekend steak barbecues, poker games and train rides for his friends from San Bernardino for years. Dale eventually donated the steam engine and caboose to the National Orange Show in San Bernardino and it was on display there gg or years.
