4. Hurunui River (North Branch) Hot Springs

Hurunui River, North of Lake Taylor, Lake Sumner Forest Park

Accessed from the Harpers Pass route, about 4 hours walk from Lake Sumner. Follow the track on the true right of the Hurunui river for 3-4 hours. You will pass a thermal waterfall, which is your queue to look for a track up into the bush. The pool is found about 50 metres above the waterfall, with the actual spring about another 50 metres above the pool. [Aaron Schulz, Kaiapoi, New Zealand]

This can be reached from the North branch via lake Mason after visiting the North branch pool.[JR, NZ]
