Palm Springs is a fourth-magnitude spring, flowing from up to seven vents or sand boils in the run. The upper four vents are labeled A, B, C, and D. The upper vent A is in a small pool that is closest to the road at the bottom of the ravine. Vent B is in the upper-middle part of the run, vent C is in the lower-middle part, and vent D is in the lower part of the run as it flows toward the northeast for about 0.3 mile to Black Water Creek. Prior to April 2003, the spring vents were impounded in a one-acre pond by a dam. The earthen dam was removed in April 2003, exposing the vents.
