Thundering Spring is one of the warm springs in Molana, Georgia. It is a swampy warm spring that is heated from a source in the middle of the spring and fed by a small stream. At one point Thundering Spring had a wooden structure built in for bathing, but the structure is now very warn.
The Thundering Spring is named for the sound the gas bubbles of the spring make. The water in the spring is warmer than the average water in this region of Georgia.
