Natural Spring Water

Just posting this as a reminder to myself and others that there's a natural spring on the portage between Rock and Pen lakes. It has been tapped and has been a water source in this area for over 100 years. Since I will be there on my solo trip this summer and love a cold drink on a hot day...this will be perfect. Apparently, even on the hottest day, the water is so cold it almost hurts.

Here is a link to the forum post I found it in.

Here are the directions for anyone who doesn't want to read the whole thread:

"to find the spring be sure to look to your right as soon as you get off the first set of boardwalks... you'll see the very wet area under the boardwalk - about 3 paces to the right is a trail - the entry is usually overgrown a little. You'll go up a bit and to the right and curve back down - there is a board to stand on and a pipe in place to make filling your bottles easier."
