Silver Glen Springs is 9 miles from Astor. Head west on State Hwy 40 for 8.1 miles from the bridge over the St. Johns River. Turn north onto State Hwy 19 and go 6 miles, turn east onto paved road and continue 0.3 miles to the spring pool.
The 200 foot in diameter semicircular pool is bounded by semi-tropical forest at the base of the sand hills of the Ocala National Forest to the west. Water from the springs flows eastward to Lake George.
