Unlike most springs in FL persevered in a state park boundary this one is in a state recreational area inside of the Ocala National Forest so a legal boundary between the recreational site area and the rest of the national forest is hard to define.

Because this is a popular public destination and a stopping point along the Florida Trail system it makes sense to have a destination highpoint for those in this hobby. Since there is a ridge line running west of the recreational area there is no real closed contour to jump on without going further into the national forest therefore, selecting the highest closed contour in the immediate vicinity of the recreation area seems reasonable and an added benefit is that this "peak" is right on the Florida Trail (or within feet of it).
