Entrance to Spring Boils Trail

From the depths of the Floridan Aquifer, water bubbles up through the sands of the Big Scrub to form tiny tributaries and large spring runs. Here at Silver Glen Springs, the Spring Boils Trail is a short, gentle walk back to a cove of tiny bubbling springs at the base of a hill, creating a waterway flowing into Silver Glen Run.
