You can take a boardwalk to the spring, but before you get on the trail, you have to descend into the valley on the long staircase, and cross the bridge near the Rebasmäe stream.

The spring water is very clean, contains iron compounds, and therefore has a unique taste and reddish colour. Be sure to taste it!
The Rebasmäe forest hut is near the spring.
