  • I visited on a week day. The area is well kept when it comes to limiting trash as there are volunteers who care for the trails monthly. The trails have many uneven stairs but are reasonably marked with traik markers but they kind of all lead into each other around the reservoir. The spring itself is very refreshing and you markedly feel a difference in temperature as soon as you approach the water. So lovely. The reservoir is teaming with wildlife for fun exploration.
  • It was a real party today at Sunders Springs! Like seriously. Every hut had a birthday or something going on in there. There were hundreds of kids playing in the water and groups of trucks of people gathered and having a good time with family and friends. We were there to take couple photos and the scenery was absolutely perfect!!! Sundown, pretty bridges and waterfalls. Definitely a place I'd suggest for pictures, family fun, or just to take a hike.
