The Hot Spring:

The Meditation Pool is located out in the forest in a maple grove next to the Wall Creek.  The beautiful scenery and the sound of trickling water is what gives this spring its name.  The sand and gravel pool is dug directly above the source of the spring.  The hot water (about 103 degree F) bubbles up from the bottom of the pool keeping the temperature at about 95 degrees F depending on air temperature and wind speed.  Even though the water is not hot enough for a good soak the pool is in a beautiful area that is perfect for a relaxing nice day.
