Okay, this was harder to find than I thought, but a few locals told me that it's right around mile marker 54, and then we found it. Great little springs on the side of a river. Just FYI, the climb down is steep but short....More

Easy Drive. No cost. No hike required even though there is a good sized slope you must go down to get to the springs. The springs were REALLY hot. They had 4 or 5 shallow pools set up to soak in. We also went swimming...More

Nice hot springs with a slight sulfur smell. The bighorn sheep and elk are right across the Crystal River. Can get busy at times. Nudity at times

Always a fun time. Sometimes the mountain goats are around. The river is down right now allowing for larger pools. Always fun meeting interesting people.

I have been there a few times, with my husband and my mother. There're a few steps down an easy but rocky trail, so short that you can see from where you park. Two small pools built with rocks, that cater to several people each....More
