5 GREAT COLORADO HOT SPRINGS FOR THOSE WILLING TO HIKE

Living in a Denver luxury neighborhood isn't always a breeze, what with the hustle and bustle of everyday life to contend with.

5 Great Colorado Hot Springs for Those Willing to Hike | Mile High Home Pro

Experience natural healing outside your Denver luxury homes. Here are five hidden but great Colorado Hot Springs for those willing to hike!

2

Penny Hot Springs

A Carbondale hot springs inn offering large hot spring pools that can fit nearly 12 people. Known for being a successor to an outdoor bath from the 1960s that was demolished because of multiple complaints of nude bathing in the area.

3

Radium Hot Springs

A fairly primitive hot springs location in the town of Kremmling, situated along the banks of the mighty Colorado River. The hike to these springs is ranked as one of the more difficult hikes in the area, but a long dip in the 80°F waters would be so worth it!

4

Piedra Hot Springs

Isolated in the heart of the San Juan National Forest Park, this shallow, man-made hot spring not only offers a relaxing and rejuvenating dip for the weary traveler (after taking a three-mile hike through a mostly-unpaved trail, of course), but is a good place to enjoy some animal-watching, with regular sightings of the local wildlife. It isn't uncommon to see deer, elks and otters roaming about.

5

Rainbow Hot Springs

Another remote hot springs location within the San Juan National Forest, boasting a majestic waterfall dropping near three mineral-filled natural pools. Reachable after a six-mile hike and culminating in a 1,500-foot climb through the West Fork Trail. A recommended stay-in spot for campers planning for a multi-day rest.

6

Conundrum Hot Springs

For those looking for a challenge, Aspen's Conundrum Hot Springs is the way to go. Eight-and-a-half miles worth of trekking combined with a 2,500-feet climb from the Conundrum Creek Trailhead, can make for some exhausting traveling, but the destination is well worth it. It is an ideal location for really getting away from the rush of the city, with nothing but the sounds and sights of nature to experience.
