Drove the back roads to Old Fort to see the geyser that is actually a fountain. A bit deceptive but nice stop while on a road trip on a hot, summer day.

Nice park for a picnic. Interesting history behind the geyser, which is really a fountain. I've been twice late spring and winter. It's a beautiful sight when frozen.

I stumbled upon this geyser-like fountain sometime ago while hiking in the nearby Pisgah National Forest. An interesting water feature. Certainly worth a stop. The spray feels great on a hot summer day. Good photo op. Also, a nice place to have a picnic.

Glad we were close to this already. It was barely bubbling up and the area around it was full of brown water and leaves. Maybe this is a summer only thing to see?

It runs non-stop. It is fed from a stream 5 miles up in the mountains. You must have been there during a dry spell if it was not working. There are no admission charges.
