    Spring Description
    The seep is at the edge of the river below two large trees.  On date of visit, water trickled out of the bank at the river's edge over a small patch (about 1 foot in diameter) of whitish limestone and directly into the river. The area above the visible flow is a tangle of tree roots.

    There is no apparent use of the spring, which is in a pristine condition.
