Most people know Glenwood Springs for its natural hot springs, and for good reason, they’re awesome. Though most usually picture the massive swimming pool at Glenwood Hot Springs. However, there’s another lesser known resort that folks love, Iron Mountain.
Tucked away alongside the Colorado River, Iron Mountain Hot Springs is sure to relax away your worries. It’s Glenwood’s newest hot springs resort, open daily year round.
Iron Mountain Hot Springs
Sixteen cozy mineral pools, ranging from 99 to 108°F are the highlight at Iron Mountain. There’s also a family swimming pool, filled with 100,000 gallons of fresh water that’s heated to 90°F by geothermal exchange. It’s great for the kids and has an elevated whirlpool attached to it for the parents.
Dining options includes the Sopris Café, which has sandwiches, flatbread pizza, snacks and smoothies, as well as the Sand Bar for sodas, beer, wine and cocktails. There are water fountains in the bathhouse, which also features spacious lockers. A retail shop covers you if you forget something like your swimsuit or sunscreen.
Gateway features the Swim & Stay Package, which combines local lodging and a visit to the hot springs, with a discount on both.
Before soothing away, earn your soak by exploring the caves and mountaintop park at Glenwood Caverns. It’s walking distance from the hot springs.
Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park
The Adventure Park features a slew of family-friendly activities. The park’s biggest attraction is its caverns, which offer three tours: Historic Fairy Cave, King’s Row Cave, Wild Cave. Tours range from forty minutes to two hours and run year round.
The Historic Fairy Cave Tour is appropriate for all ages, as is the King’s Row Cave. Thrill seekers will enjoy the Wild Cave Tour, which features sections as small as 18 inches square and forces participants to crawl on the ground. This tour is open to those ten years and older.
