“Beautiful walking tour”

Owner description: Blue Spring is a natural wonder, pouring 38 million gallons of cold, clear water each day into its trout-stocked lagoon.Start your adventure with an insightful historic film in the Visitor Center, then stroll the handicapped-accessible walkways and inviting garden paths that wind through the 33 acres of native gardens. Visit the historic mill site that dates from the 1840's, see the Bluff Shelter on the National Register of Historic Places, and walk along the path of the Trail of Tears. Resident Appaloosas and abundant native flora and fauna delight visitors, and our charming gift shop offers an array of items to keep the exerience alive. Blue Spring is a quiet getaway and a perfect place for weddings, group outings or any special occasion.

I have been here a couple of times. The first was in the fall and not many flowers were blooming. The next time was in the spring and it had an abundance of flowers of different varieties. They also opened up another trail that led you through a wooded section by the bluffs. The whole park and especially the spring is beautiful.

You must take the time to ponder on the marvel of the clean, blue water that is so magical. Also, think about The Trail of Tears where Cherokees were forced from their homelands and driven to Oklahoma: another crime of the U.S. Government!

Basically you walk down 130ish steps to see blue mossy water, then to the other side to see the damn and an area that is a bluff\shelter. You get eat up by mosquitoes then you give up and walk back up a mile of ramps to get back to the only bathroom.

You must go at the right time of the season to get the full affect of the 77 foot waterfall. We only got to see it at about 10 feet because it was so dry. But it has a nice gift shop, clean and friendly staff.
