This wonderfully easy to access spring is located at a T-Intersection on TN 360, between Tellico Plains and Varnel. The Rotary recently installed an interesting catwalk that allows you to sit and wash your feet in the cool mountain spring water. Across the street is a flagpole and Stars and Stripes. See photo.

I used a well rinsed metal stopper drinking container to take the sample, so there may be some variation in my readings –
TDS: 115 ppm
pH: 7.5
Easy to fill even 5 gallon jugs. Plenty of parking for a group of 50 bikes. A MUST STOP for motorcycle riders heading to The Dragon!

    No chemical from the farms around?

  2. Would not recommend drinking this water. I had it tested by a independent lab and it came back with coliform bacteria.
