Location

Boulder Spring is located approximately 7 miles west of Sanford within the Seminole State Forest.

Description

Boulder Spring is a 5th magnitude spring. The spring is a collection of four small vents issuing clear water. The spring head is a small pool in an area of limerock outcrop at the base of a hillside, with large limestone boulders in the spring pool and run. Large angular boulders covered with green moss are in the spring pool and the spring run.

The run is 0.3 miles long, 10 feet wide, 0.3 feet deep, and flows northwest into Sulphur Run.

The area around the spring slopes steeply up a forested hill known as Sulphur Island. Several springs are located around the perimeter of this “island”.

Utilization

The spring is undeveloped. The water flows into Sulphur Run.
