    Nice walk into the pools, the actual hot pool was hard to find but i walked upstream from river and ecentually found it. It had a layor of oil on the surface and i did notice a few long thin worms lurking in the pool which was a bit offputting but other that that and the beer cans floating around, it was just warmer than luke warm. Nice sceanery all around and sheltered by a slightly overhanging rock
