Hot Springs Pools on the Colorado River

The mountain views at the Iron Mountain Hot Springs are truly inspirational. This is what we see from the upper floor of the bathhouse, looking out over the hot springs pools on the Colorado River in Glenwood Springs. You’ll be able to soak in the iron-rich mineral waters starting the summer of 2015.

There will be 16 different mineral soaking pools at Iron Mountain Hot Springs. All the pools will be untreated with more than 14 minerals found in the water. The five most abundant minerals that will be found in soaking pools are iron, sulfate, chloride, sodium and calcium. Iron and sulfate are known for their relaxing qualities. Thermal heat from the springs will be used to warm the family pool and to heat the walkways and buildings.

In addition to the 16 mineral soaking pools, guests can also enjoy the freshwater family pool and a jetted spa. This pool will be the largest at Iron Mountain Hot Springs. It will be treated with chlorine to accommodate younger children who need swim diapers. Children under 5 will not be permitted in the fresh water family pool.
