Quick Directions

Directions

Accessible via small boat.  From the center of Marianna on U.S. 90, go north on Jefferson Street (State Road 167—the same turn as for Florida Cavern State Park) and proceed about 1.5 miles to the bridge over the Chipola River. Put in and go downstream about 6.75 miles.  The spring is on the east bank, a little below the two spring runs that cascade/tumble into the river.  The spring is at the base/roots of two large trees and directly across from the middle of three mobile homes that are on the opposite (west) bank.  GPS coordinates: N30.44.503; W85.12.701..

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.

Use/Access

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