Description

This short trail packs a lot of punch. You have waterfalls dropping into sky-blue pools of water. You have hot springs and bubbling mud pits. It's just a shame that it's not longer.

From the parking lot it's well marked. Just head up the trail. Along the way there are a few short branches that head down to the various attractions.
