  1. Lost springs and ruins! Does anybody know about the spring down river from the Silent Pool? It is not on Breitenbush property but rather Forest Service. It looks like it was once a very developed and cared for site now fallen into near-complete disrepair. There was a lot of concrete, some if it still baring patches of blue and white tile, a couple of intact single pools and a lot of mucky steaming concrete vats. There was a well maintained trail heading away from the springs, but I only followed it about a quarter mile. There was also poison ivy along the border between the properties. I was wandering on a dear trail from the Retreat and do not encourage anyone to take it. It was such a stark juxtaposition coming from Breitenbush to this over-engineered then forgotten sacred place. Do these springs have a name?

  2. You must be speaking of Lower Breitenbush Hot Springs I found a Facebook page
