If I had to guess at its magnitude, I'd call it an "8", as its flow is very slight. I had to drop a leaf in the water to verify that it was in fact, flowing.

As far as I know, this spring is not listed anywhere else. My friends, Paul, (AKA: Kleetus), and Bob, decided we were going to bushwhack our way up Mormon Creek till we found its source. This waymark is the fruits of our toils, and earned its name by the act of Kleetus hiding a cache there. GC17YVD

The water level for this area is low, according to the watermarks on the surrounding trees. I imagine when the water level is high, finding this spring would be nigh impossible.

The best parking would be at N29* 10.494 W081* 40.338.
Proceed north on the trail roughly half a mile, then bushwhack east till you find it.

I suspect that SJRWMD would classify this as a "seep" instead of a spring, as there is no mineral smell to the water.
