Inscription. Rock Spring Nature Trail offers you an opportunity to explore a small natural spring as it bubbles forth from the ground. Small fish dart about a deep pool created as the stream wandered through rich bottomland soil and limestone rock. Vegetation and trees change as you move through an abandoned field past the stream onto a rocky hillside.
     After completing the 20-minute walk you may decide to pull off your shoes and dangle your feet in the swift cool waters.
 
Erected by National Park Service.
