Glen Springs is a 4th magnitude spring situated in the upper end of a wooded ravine. The spring vent flows from limestone in the 18-foot long by 10-foot wide head pool, which is enclosed by a concrete wall. Water flows from the head pool into two swimming pools behind the Elks Lodge, and then to the spring run. The spring run flows in the ravine toward the southeast for about 500 feet to Hogtown Creek. The spring and pools are used as a private recreational facility.
Glen Springs is located in the northwest quadrant of the city of Gainesville. From the intersection of U.S. Highway 441 and State Road (SR) 26, drive north on U.S. Highway 441 for 1.5 miles.
