The little bath hut has a log-house exterior, and inside offers 100% natural hot spring water without any added water or recirculation of the rather hot sodium sulfate spring. The area is secluded enough to warrant a ""Caution: Bears"" sign outside. This spot has been in use for over 200 years, and is famous as a treatment spring for nerve pain and muscle soreness, chronic digestive diseases, and more.
