    To get to this spring is nearly impossible since there are no given directions. Findaspring.com (as of now – 4-2014) has no “zoom out” so no one could view where this was located from a wider perspective. I located the alleged spot on google earth and it appears to be relatively far off-road. I spent quite some time searching for it. If it does exist it is on private land, down some steep slopes and well off Hugheston Rd. with little to no pull-over space. Unless the person who posted this supposed spring responds with accurate directions and knowledge about the public accessibility of the spring, I would advise against searching for it. Good luck fellow spring hunters.
    FYI: I asked at both the Chamber of Commerce and the City Hall of Harbor Springs about the namesake’s springs of the harbor. No one had any idea what I was talking about. Bummer.

      I was the original poster of this spring. I gave the wrong coordinates for the specific spring that I mentioned in this post. Harbor springs has tons of artesian wells all over though, hence the name Harbor Springs 🙂 Anyways I would like to clarify the coordinated for anyone hiking to find this beautiful spring. The spring is located on the Raunecker Walking trail in Nature Preserve. Head west on 4th street until the road splits into two, head left instead of heading up Bull Moose Hill, the hiking trail is an immediate left. Once you are on the trail the springs are located off trail to the left at the edge of a large spring fed pond. The artesian well here flows quite a bit of volume. Apologize for the confusion. 45.430474, -85.002130 For FINDASPRING this is the approximate location.
