The spring forms a circular pool that was about 100 feet in diameteron dates of visit in fall 2000. The water was clear and dark, but the generaldepth appeared to be about 6 feet. The bottom was dark, but the pool slopedoff to deeper water in the SW end. No boil was visible on dates of visit,but the run was clearly flowing into the Santa Fe River, indicating a spring.
Hornsby & Ceryak state the depth of the vent as 26 feet (1998, p.46). The east end of the spring had a dry creek bed that apparently flowsinto the spring. The spring has a run that is about 35 feet wide and 50feet long. The land around the spring is thick, floodplain forest, anda barred owl was heard and observed on both dates of visit in 2000.
