Take S-20 from Gainesville towards Hawthorne. Look for route CR-21. Turn left onto Lake Galilee Dr, about 1.8 miles from the CR-21 intersection. Travel about 150 yards and take a dirt road to the left, just past the first group of mobile homes. The sink will be a little under .5 miles on the left hand side.
This can be a very difficult site in which to enter and egress due to the steep sides. The sink is about 60 feet in diameter with the water level about 50 from the top of the sink. Water depth is about 80 feet, though it can be tannic at times. There is an old ladder on site, but make sure to inspect the anchors. It is best to bring a surface buddy to watch your stuff and provide assistance.
