In the rolling, forested landscape of Round Spring, two of America’s most beautiful spring-fed rivers combine to make up the Ozark National Scenic Riverways. As the first national park area to protect a wild river system, visitors have plenty of scenic water activities to enjoy as well as hiking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing. The spring itself is about 55 feet deep, rising in a nearly circular pool of water before flowing under a natural bridge to join the Current River. On average, 26 million gallons of water a day flow from the spring. At times, otters, wood ducks and great blue herons may be seen in the spring, however, people are prohibited from swimming or wading in it. You may visit and enjoy the wheelchair accessible paved trail around the spring at any time.
