The spring lies in the bed of Spring Creek between the remnants of two beaver dams. Water flows from a small limestone opening (that was not clearly visible) at a depth of 2-3 feet. A mild upwelling was visible on the surface, and the water was fairly clear. The bottom of the creek in this backed-up section is covered in filamentous algae. The creek is 25 feet across and is completely canopied by trees and shrubs along its low banks.
- No apparent use, except by beavers.
- The land is not signposted. Hornsby & Ceryak state that the land around the spring is private property (2000, p. 31)
- An overland walk through thick woods is required to reach the spring site, and the spring itself is difficult to spot.
The contrast between the completely pristine condition of this spring and the exotic- and garbage-overrun TAY924993 less than 100 yards away is startling.
