The Hot Spring:

This hot spring is one of a kind, Located on the opposite side of Oxbow reservoir the springs spits out of a huge travertine rock formation and drizzles down the slope, at the bass of the rock there are a couple of really hot sources wich are piped to the main tub, just beside this tub is a bath tub wich also has a much cooler source and can be used as a cold plunge, although you could put the hot pipe in and make it a hot pot. this is a priviately owned spring so please do your part to keep this place clean, pack in, pack out.
