Fall is the perfect time for a vacation getaway in the Colorado mountains. Plus, after months of working from home, you’re likely in need of a change of scenery. As summer draws to a close, Iron Mountain Hot Springs in Glenwood Springs becomes a place of peace and tranquility especially midweek from Monday through Thursday.
What to Expect From Midweek Travel to Iron Mountain Hot Springs
- During the fall shoulder season, more time slots become available making it easier to reserve the 2-1/2 hour soaking window of your choice. To do so, visit Iron Mountain Hot Springs and follow the prompts to make a reservation.
- Iron Mountain Hot Springs opens daily at 9 a.m. Mornings are a particularly serene time to soak. Watch steam lift from the Colorado River as the sun hits the cold water and overhead birds of prey cruise the waterway for a breakfast of fresh fish.
- You can also expect plenty of room to maneuver in the bathhouse locker rooms. Free premium shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion and hairdryers are also available to guests. Lockers, however, are temporarily closed due to COVID precautions, but cubbies for storing items are available outdoors.
- Other COVID guidelines continue to be in effect as well. Masks are required on the pool deck, in the restaurant and lobby, but not while soaking. Guests are asked to respect the maximum number of people recommended per pool. Signs designating limits are posted at each of Iron Mountain Hot Springs 16 soaking pools.
- The Sand Bar is open midweek for delicious snacks, wraps, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, all of which can be enjoyed at socially distanced tables throughout the property.
What to Expect From Midweek Travel to Glenwood Springs
- With the Grizzly Creek Fire nearly extinguished, Interstate 70 through Glenwood Canyon is open for east-west travel. Due to construction, at the Hanging Lake tunnels, the roadway narrows to two-lanes for the final 10 miles into Glenwood Springs. The Colorado Department of Transportation expects construction to be completed in October.
- Throughout the pandemic, Glenwood Springs has embraced outdoor dining. Almost every restaurant in town has some sort of sidewalk seating. Fall days and balmy evenings are an ideal time to enjoy a meal al fresco.
- Feel free to roam far and wide on Glenwood’s many hiking and biking trails. With fewer visitors during autumn, conditions are enhanced for a quiet hike or a solitary mountain bike ride amid golden-hued foliage.
