The spring's outlet can be found right by the road. It is easy to see from the road and is easy to reach. The spring's outlet runs along the side a hill. Since the entire area is a forest state park (Patapsco Valley State Park), there are no buildings or hardscapes visible. I believe the spring's water quality is very high. It appears that there is a steel pipe that runs from the top of the hill to the bottom. The last ten feet are likely to be a pvc pipe. However, the spring is continuously running at a fast speed and I believe this plastic contact has very little effect. The spring tastes nice and cool, even though it was May. The water is refreshing and has a thirst quenching flavor. The spring is found on a road that is often frequented by noisy, fast-moving vehicles, trucks, and motorcycles.
The spring flows at a rate of 1.5 GPM which seems very fast. It is best to test the water for quality.

You can simply empty your bottles and place them on a table near the spring. As needed, fill up! The address I gave is just down the road, where you will find a horse camp.
