Map of Mineral Pools at Iron Mountain Hot Springs
Iron Mountain Hot Springs in Glenwood Springs is situated on a terraced slope overlooking the Colorado River. We’ve designed the hot springs for your ultimate convenience and enjoyment. Our goal is to help you relax, restore and rejuvenate.
You’ll begin your visit in the bathhouse, where you’ll find modern locker rooms, family changing rooms, a gift shop and hydration stations. Outside, experience 16 mineral-rich soaking pools, an experience pool, and our freshwater family pool with an elevated jetted spa. Each pool is unique in size, shape and temperature. Try them all and find the one that’s right for you. The pools are connected with heated walkways to melt snow and prevent iciness in the winter. Two of the soaking pools are ADA compliant and have transfer walls and grab bars that allow a person with upper body strength to leave a mobility device and transfer onto the wall and then into the water. A quiet zone surrounds the soaking pools to ensure a peaceful, rejuvenating atmosphere. There are more than 14 different minerals found in the analysis of our water. The five most abundant minerals in the soaking pools are iron, sulfate, chloride, sodium and calcium. Iron and sulfate are known for their relaxing qualities. Sorry, children younger than five are not allowed in our 16 small mineral pools or experience pool, and children 5 to 13 will need parent or guardian supervision.
Small children are welcome in our freshwater family pool, designed to keep the whole clan happy, this is the largest of our pools. A curving, gently sloped ramp into the family pool makes it accessible by wheelchair and by anyone who prefers to avoid stairs. A smaller, elevated whirlpool spa with jets sits on the edge of the family pool with a perfect soaking temperature of just over 100°F. Parents can enjoy the hotter water while supervising their children below, with the calming sounds of a waterfall in the background as water cascades from the upper to the lower section.
To maximize the benefits of soaking in our pools and to ensure your safety and that of our employees, please follow the recommendations stated here. If you have questions about these or other aspects of the property, ask our front desk staff upon arrival or contact us prior to your visit.
