A Spring with Unparalleled Beauty
Silver Glen Springs is a first-magnitude spring with a large, semicircular pool that measures 200 feet from north to south and 175 feet from east to west. Most of the strong flow emerges from two cavern openings in the rock at the bottom of the pool, with large boils at the water’s surface over the vents. The vertical cave opening called the Natural Well in the southwestern edge of the pool is about 12 to 15 feet in diameter and 40 feet deep. The vent in the east part of the pool is a conical depression about 18 feet deep. Silver Glen Springs is among the most beautiful of Florida’s blue gems, in no small part due to its exceptionally clear water and beautiful setting in the Ocala National Forest. Unlike some Florida springs, the unparalleled clarity of the water at this spring can always be counted on.
