The Hot Spring:

Pine Flats hot springs is one of a kind, a huge hillside with amazing waterfalls of hot water cascade down into a couple of cliffside pools, each pool has a different temp starting with the hottest ones on top and the coolers ones on the bottom making a choice shouldnt be a problem. there are many springs and alot of potential to construct more pools up near the sources wich come out around 127, there is a large pool around or over the hillside wich has a 30 foot hot shower falling into it, this one is more priviate and seems to hold more people with temps around 107 making it the best soak in Pine flats.
