    This is a 1.2 mile hike alongside the creek which is lovely. Lots of spots with rocks or bridges to stop and catch your breath as there is also a 1000 ft change in elevation which may impact you. I am 64 and in good shape so I didn't find it bothered my heart and lungs but I did feel some lighheadedness and as we came from a much lower elevation my body had not adjusted to the change in elevation. Nothing serious, I was still able to complete the hike but had to stop a couple of times. Be sure to bring water and hydrate often. The path is a bit rough so you have to pay attention to where you are going and it can be quite challenging in some areas, still so worth it. Make sure you go to Spouting Rock at the top, just a bit further and go under the falls, so cool and refreshing too.

    One of the most gorgeous places in the whole world. Absolutely stunning. We went mid-day when the sun was shining down and the place lights up with colors that are simply magnificent. Heaven on Earth.

    We had such a great time! The park is easy to get to, well organized, and the staff is friendly. We rarely waited for a ride. Defiance is a great roller coaster. Our son loved it so much, he rode it 7 times! The cavern tours were great too. I would definitely come back here.

    We got the world springs package for 21 & older. We thoroughly enjoyed several of the hot pools, cold plunge pool and the Dead Sea pool which is a bit cooler but still full of minerals. The showers are very nice.

    I really like that they added multiple new pools because we were able to hop around as we pleased to each one. It was crowded, but it wasn't bad. There are enough pools that people can be pretty spaced out.

    The hike up was difficult for me but I have asthma and I’m not used to the altitude and it was nearly 90°. There were beautiful views along the trail. The cemetery holds so much history! I enjoyed walking around and reading the stones.

    What a refreshing atmosphere compared to the big resorts. Super easy to get to if you're staying in GS, parking is a breeze and of course, free. I actually found the greens and blues to be a little more challenging than the average g/b, which was cool. The views from the top lift are breathtaking and the rental/lift ticket staff was incredibly friendly. The most important part of this review to me was acknowledging Bill, the man who runs their Customer Services. I lost my wallet and he spent so much time trying to help me recover it, even going through garbage with me. It turned up, and he walked through the whole lodge looking for me to happily return it. He was just a very down to Earth nice guy who clearly loves his job. Overall a huge 5 star rating is what this place deserves.

    Wanted a hike on our road trip and this was perfect! Right off I70. Trail exit marked as a rest area. We hiked for an hour. Trail follows the creek. Kids would also enjoy the rocks and the view of the water. There are also a couple picnic tables not far from the trail parking lot. It would be a great spot for a scenic picnic.

    Pretty overlook on the way. it’s uphill the entire way there. You can stop at a few spots to sit or admire to scenery. We drove from Denver on a Sunday- the traffic was terrible coming back. Not sure if I’d drive 2.5 hrs again to see it for 10 minutes, but if you’re in the area or passing by, surely it should be on your list. We made a few other stops on the way back to Denver.

    The museum is small but interesting. We enjoyed seeing the historical items and reading about them. I was surprised to even see some things on a visit from Teddy Roosevelt. Worth the time

    Incredibly friendly woman who works there, but her name escapes me. Beautiful and diverse art and jewelry to choose from, you won’t leave empty handed.
