    Quiet peaceful area; Water has a metalic taste and is not very cold… not very appetising to drink, but is clear. Hope this helps.

    Gathered about 5 gallons form here recently. Tasted good and was clear when I gathered, but after sitting for a while hardened yellowish/gold deposits formed at the bottom of the jug. I have no idea what it is and it also tinted the water a yellowish color. I still drank it, and felt great after drinking it. It was kind of gross to look at though. If anyone is aware of what this could be it would be great to know!

    I pass by this spring every week so I decided to stop and give it a try! It was not good at all! It had a sulfur smell and had a bad taste. I was very disappointed!

    Water was clear, cool and very refreshing! And strong flow!! No smell and tasted pretty good.
