The spring lies in a pool that is just above where the 0.8 mile runfrom Hornsby Spring joins the Santa Fe River. On date of visit (April 2000),the water was completely covered in exotic aquatic vegetation and cloggedto the point that it could not be canoed. The vent from the spring, measuredby Hornsby & Ceryak at 9.6 MGD from a vent ten feet deep (1998, p.21), was not visible. Land rose up above the spring and was cleared andgrassy.
The land around the pool is private and posted. A swinging bench isbuilt into a small platform above the small dock near the spring.
The clogged spring was unappealing and a disappointment—the legacyof invasive exotics.
