The spring water is clear blue and there is little aquatic vegetation. The spring run is 20 ft wide and 8 ft deep with aquatic vegetation on both sides. The run flows northeast 225 ft, passing Devilís Eye and Devilís Ear Springs before entering the Santa Fe River from the south. The spring pool, which is ringed by grass and cypress trees, is used for swimming, scuba diving, and snorkeling.
