("Down this path a full-sized river, the Metolius, flows ice cold from huge springs. The springs appear to originate from beneath Black Butte. However, geologists say this is misleading and believe the springs have thier origin in the Cascade Mountains to the West. The unusual fault which created Green Ridge is thought to have brought the springs to the surface, thus releasing the beautiful Melolius River. The land adjacent to the historic springs was donated to the U.S. Forest Servce by Sam and Becky Johnson for the development of the scenic viewpoint.")
The water seems to flow right out of the side of the mountain.
