The Directions

Come out of the and head right to the roundabout. Take a right at that roundabout and follow that road out of town for about ten minutes. You will soon enough see a sign for on your right. Take that right turning onto a dirt path and follow it straight for another ten minutes until you reach the ticket office. At the ticket office, you will be required to pay the ETB90 entrance fee and hire a scout for between ETB50 - 200. Negotiate hard to get a fair price for the scout.
 
From the ticket office it’s just over 3 kilometres to the Forty Springs that is named after. Along the way, the hot and dusty track will pass through scrub and into a thicker and taller forest that will eventually lead to the rather disappointing cold springs. After dipping your feet in the stream, return back he way you came. If the scout has been particularly useful at spotting wildlife along the way, you may want to give them a small tip.
