St Leon Hot Springs (Hot Springs)

 

These undeveloped wilderness hot springs are located in a cedar forest 20km away from Halcyon. There is a small 6 m by 3 m (20x10ft) cement pool, built by the site’s regular visitors, that offers a blissful soak in the hot water averaging 39°C (102°F). The water to the pool is delivered from the nearby emerging spring via plastic pipes. There is also a second smaller pool on the rocks above with even hotter water 50°C (120°F). St Leon Hot Springs is located on a private property, but it is open to the public, provided that there is no garbage left behind.
