We were determine to make the walk and soak our feet like many others. Not disappointed at all and the steps down the the trail is fairly easy. Not many visitors during winter time and great spot for taking photos along the way.

Wow, water is so warm but still you feel relaxed while walking a little around 100 meters in the river path. temperature of water feels like 42 degree but it is refreshing. I really enjoyed walking inside river.
