This waterfall has a reputation as a place to enjoy soaking in the outdoor hot springs, but the soaking has been strongly curtailed by ropes blocking off the waterfalll area. You can climb up a bit on the left side of the falls, but from...More

This is a fascinating place in that the falls are fed from a spring with hot water. The temperature is a comfortable warmth. People are free to wander up the falls and many swim in the different water holes that are along the stream.
