The facility will also have a Kneipp Walk, which is a shallow pool designed for wading in alternating hot and cold water, which is supposed to improve blood circulation.

The Yellowstone River

Beneath Yellowstone Lake, the river continues to flow through Yellowstone Park, flowing over the huge Yellowstone Falls. Beneath the falls, the river enters steep canyons and flows wildly, before entering Montana in the town of Gardiner. Floating is not allowed in Yellowstone Park, so floating begins in Gardiner

The Yellowstone River is a tributary of the Missouri River, approximately 692 miles (1,114 km) long, in the western United States. Considered the principal tributary of the upper Missouri, the river and its tributaries drain a wide area stretching from the Rocky Mountains in the vicinity of the Yellowstone National Park across the mountains and high plains of southern Montana and northern Wyoming.
