Iron Mountain Hot Springs in Glenwood Springs is known for its pure, unspoiled geothermal waters. Chemicals like chlorine are never added to its 16 soaking pools, rather to keep the pools pristine, the water in each pool is completely refreshed every two hours. Pure, chemical-free water enables your body to absorb only the good stuff—the 14 minerals dissolved in the naturally heated spring-fed water.

In addition to the main attraction—a premium hot springs soaking experience—it’s the little extras that add to the spa-like ambiance at Glenwood’s only riverside hot springs.
