The Hot Spring:

this hot spring is on the correct side of the  road, hot water streams down the hillside at around 110 and spills over a rock lip into the first pool, the overhang creates a groto effect with shower. the pool is about 6 feet wide and eight feet long enough for 10. the water spills over again and flows more cool into the second pool wich is smaller by far and more personal. the pools at Loftus are great so please lets keep it clean for all of us.
