a nice, easy short hike to see the amazingly clear water! yes, it is clear water and you can actually see the spring water bubbling out of the ground and creating a cloud of sand whirling around on the bottom of the river! nowhere else have I been able to see the actual spring water as it comes out of the ground. definitely work a visit and not far off the main road!

Lovely to have a hut by the water near the end of the hike. Nice swimming. Beautiful changing scenery each day. Not very difficult terrain.
