Iron Mountain Hot Springs Pools

The perfect Colorado hot springs experience is waiting for you! Different in size, shape, and temperature, try all 16 geothermal pools at Iron Mountain Hot Springs to determine your favorite. When you’re ready to cool off or want to splash around with the kids, take a refreshing break in our freshwater family pool. It’s a guest favorite and offers a respite from the higher-temperature geothermal pools. An attached and elevated jetted spa gives parents a convenient perch to keep an eye on their children.


Family Pool and Jetted Spa

This is the largest of our pools, designed to keep the whole clan happy. The geothermal exchange fills the lower portion with 100,000 gallons of fresh water heated to a comfortable 94 degrees Fahrenheit. A curving, gently sloped ramp into the family pool makes it accessible by wheelchair and 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.

Geothermal Pools

Were you thinking of something a little cozier? There are sixteen naturally shaped geothermal pools, each heated to a different temperature ranging from 98 to 108. Relax in the one that’s just right for you, or move from one to another for a progressive soaking experience. The pools are connected with heated walkways to melt snow and prevent iciness in the winter. Two of the geothermal 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 into the water. The geothermal pools are filled with our natural thermal waters that complete a total changeover every two hours. More than 14 different minerals are found in our water analysis. Iron, sulfate, chloride, sodium, and calcium are geothermal pools’ five most abundant minerals. Iron and sulfate are known for their relaxing qualities. Magnificent views, which vary from pool to pool, include the Colorado River as it winds through the valley, Iron Mountain, Red Mountain, the Flat Tops, and the twin peaks of majestic Mt. Sopris to the south; make your visit to the Glenwood hot springs even more enjoyable.  Sorry, children under 5 are not allowed in the 16 small mineral pools, and children 5 to 13 require parent/guardian supervision.

Our Inspired Pool

Take a trip to hot springs worldwide without having to leave Colorado! Our newest inspired pool uses unique mineral water formulas inspired by some of the most famous hot springs across the world. The pool is currently inspired by the Blue Lagoon in Iceland. Rich in silica, potassium, and boron minerals. When combined in geothermal waters, research has shown these minerals promote anti-aging. In Iceland, the hot springs originally gained notoriety when a local woman bathed there in hopes of decreasing her psoriasis symptoms and experienced dramatic improvement.
