Overview Location & Specifics Conditions Resources Nearby Systems  
The spring is in a low area about 100 feet from the Santa Fe River. The spring and its run are 40-50 feet wide, a few feet deep, and the run is partially blocked by logs and aquatic vegetation. The spring pool is circular, and a strong boil is present above an opening in the limestone. Water in the spring is clear and blue or green depending on lighting and other conditions. The inteconnected cavern systems associated with other springs at Ginnie Springs have been mapped for 33,000 feet. Water in the spring is around 72 degrees. Studies show that the springs are fed by two watersheds that encompass 300 square miles (Rauch, 2003).
