If you’re driving up Oak Creek Canyon towards Flagstaff, you might want to make a
quick stop at Harding Spring. You can drive right up to it and park next to it. It’s popular with locals who bring empty water jugs to be filled. I’ve met people from all over the Verde Valley and the Flagstaff area who frequent it.
Harding Spring is an Artesian Spring that is piped across the creek to the roadside of 89A. It has two taps that are always flowing and you can fill up a 5 gallon jug in a couple minutes max. The water is clear and cold and very good.
