Iron Mountain Hot Springs is scenically located on the banks of the Colorado River. Opened in July of 2015, it’s the newest Colorado hot springs resort, offering a variety of soaking pools in beautiful Glenwood Springs.
They offer a 10% discount for seniors (65+), as well as a military and AAA discount for the whole family. Lockers are included in the entry fee, and you can rent towels.
The 70’x35’ family pool is filled with 100,000 gallons of fresh water and features a gently sloped ramp, making it accessible by wheelchair. The pool is geothermally heated to 90º Fahrenheit. A 18’x8’ whirlpool spa, which is just over 100°F, sits above the pool.
There are sixteen small hot springs pools heated between 99 to 108°F. Each of the pools is connected via heated walkway, perfect for winter. These geothermal water has a complete changeover every two hours. A warm creek returns the cleaned water to the Colorado River.
All offer outstanding views, ranging from Iron Mountain, Red Mountain, the Flat Tops and Mount Sopris. There’s a quiet zone that surrounds the soaking pools, ensuring everyone gets the relaxation they deserve. The iron-rich thermal water contains more than 14 different minerals.
The lodge-style bathhouse features a retail store, locker room and restaurant. The Sopris Café serves breakfast items, sandwiches, pizza, desserts, soft-serve ice cream, frozen yogurt, smoothies and alcohol.
Across the way is the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.
