This Road Trip To Colorado’s Hot Springs Is The Most Amazing Thing You Will Ever Do

This road trip is pure paradise!

Strawberry Park Natural Hot Springs.

44200 Co Rd 36, Steamboat Springs, CO 80487

Just outside of Steamboat Springs nestled alongside Hot Springs Creek lies one of the most spectacular mineral springs in the world. Imagine relaxing in 104 degree mineral water while Steamboat’s famous Champagne Powder gently collects in the surrounding forest.

The Springs Resort and Spa.

165 Hot Springs Blvd, Pagosa Springs, CO 81147

The “Great Pagosah Spring” which feeds mineral water to their 23 soaking pools, won the Guinness World Record title of The World’s Deepest Geothermal Hot Spring, on August 20, 2011. The Mother Spring measured at an astounding 1,002 feet deep! However, no one really knows just how deep the hot spring is. Every time the spring has been measured, the plumb line ran out before reaching the bottom.

Waunita Hot Springs Ranch.

8007 Co Rd 887, Gunnison, CO 81230

They offer a 35 ft wide by 90 ft long pool — one of the largest private swimming pools in all of Colorado — and it’s completely fed by the natural hot springs. This means no matter the outside temperature, we’re able to keep it a nice and soothing 95 degrees and an adjacent hot tub is maintained and 100 degrees. After a day of riding, hiking or whatever your activity, you’ll find the hot springs a popular place.

Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge.

415 E 6th St, Glenwood Springs, CO 81602

On the grounds of the World’s Largest Hot Springs Pool we offer a 107 room lodge, water slides, mini golf, a premier athletic club, and the spectacular new Spa of the Rockies. In the tradition of the West, the complete renovation of the historic sandstone bathhouse is a tribute to the spiritual beauty of this majestic landscape.

Ouray Hot Springs Pool.

1230 Main St, Ouray, CO 81427

Ouray’s public pool contains close to a million gallons of crystal clear natural hot springs water, free from the strong smell of sulfur typical of many hot springs. In addition to several soaking sections at a variety of temperatures ranging from 88 to 106 degrees, the pool has a lap swimming section, a diving area, a large slide, a shallow section for younger children and a game area for water volleyball.
