Clearspring Tarn is a clearing in Skyrim in The Rift. It is located to the southwest of Mistwatch, but cannot be reached from there due to a cliff face. There are two hunters here hunting for deer. At the bottom of the spring is a chest with an apprentice lock.


Clearspring Cave

Just below the clearing is a small path that leads to a cave. Within the cave is a leveled troll and a named bow with some random loot.
