The mineral-rich hot springs that bubble up along the Colorado River in Glenwood Springs have been reputed for centuries to have health benefits. Whether or not there is evidence for their ability to heal, it's hard to deny the relaxation benefits from spending an afternoon soaking in a hot springs pool. With 16 naturally shaped soaking pools and a freshwater family pool, all situated right along the Colorado River with views of the surrounding mountains, Iron Mountain Hot Springs offers the perfect spot to do just that. The large family pool has ample space for the kids to splash around (and has the lowest temperature of all the pools), while the soaking pools are warmer (the hottest one gets up to 108 degrees Fahrenheit), cozier and a bit quieter (Iron Mountain maintains a quiet zone around the soaking pools). The poolside Sopris Cafe sells snack, lunch and dinner items plus beer, wine and cocktails for the adults. The amenities are clean and well-kept; the locker rooms have keyless lockers, which are free to use, and private showers. There's also a family changing room. Iron Mountain Hot Springs offers two soaking pools that are ADA compliant, both of which are accessible on a wheelchair via a paved path (all paved paths are heated to keep them clear of snow in the winter).
