Florida Springs Guide: Silver Glen Springs – Orlando Sentinel

Silver Glen Springs is located in the Silver Glen Springs Recreational Area of the Ocala NationalForest, about 11 miles south of the town of Salt Springs.

From the intersection of State Roads (SR) 19 and 40, drive north on SR 19 for 6 miles to the entrance of the recreational area on the east (right) side of the road; the spring is situated south of the parking area.

Silver Glen Springs is a 1st magnitude spring with a large, semicircular pool that measures 200 feet north to south and 175 feet east to west. Most of the strong flow emerges from two cavern openings in the rock at the bottom of the pool, with large boils at the water’s surface over the vents.
