Attraction details
Type: Hot springs & geysers, Nature & Parks
Activities: Swimming, Hiking, Sunbathing
Owner description: Located between Aspen and Vail, you'll find the World's Largest Hot Springs Pool. The Ute Indians called it Yampah, meaning "big medicine." Soothe your muscles after outdoor activities year round. The large pool is kept at a comfortable 90°- 93° F and the smaller therapy pool averages about 104° F. Additional amenities include a lodge, spa, athletic club, grill and shopping. Relieve muscle and joint pain, or just relax and feel the wonder of a soak in our hot springs. Soaking in hot, highly concentrated mineral water has many health benefits. Increasing body temperature helps the body naturally kill harmful germs and viruses, eliminate toxins, and increase blood flow. The absorbtion of essential minerals gives the body a natural boost. You will feel the difference within minutes of stepping in. Jump in the large pool, at over 400 feet long, and "cool down." Swim laps or practice your form on the diving board. Water slides, mini golf, and kiddie pool are available in the warmer months. Bring your own cooler and snacks, or stop by the poolside Grill to grab a bite.

Our family made an evening outing to the hot springs. Though the outside temperature was chilly, the warmth of the soak was awesome. Everyone enjoyed the trip. Don't forget your towel.

Always a great way to warm up in the cold. The hot springs is surrounded by the beautiful mountains and has all amenities needed for a swim day in the snow and cold.

This hot springs experience is a must! I like going around dusk as the sun goes down and the pool takes on a whole different look and feel. I hope to stay at the hotel sometime soon. Short distance to old downtown and great eateries.

This is my second time at the hot springs. My family felt the same - a bit ambivalent about the whole thing. The location is a great heritage site, good history. For the price, it doesn't feel like a great value. About $15 a person. Towels are too small. Of course the natural pool water is amazing and it's massive.... More

Like all pools, it is interesting just to watch! Two large natural mineral pools in a beautiful place. So much to do and an afternoon or evening at the pool is great!

Passed by this area many times & finally scheduled our road trip to include a night here to check out the World's largest Hot Springs. The bath house & lodge were built around the Springs area in 1890. Today it cost us $15.95 each for a day long pass, allowing you to come & go as you wish. There are... More

It is a great place to soak away worries. If we get too hot in the small, hot pool, we get in the big pool and take a leisurely stroll to the far end, and then head back to the hot pool. One of my favorite places.

The Glenwood Hot Springs pool is a local institution and well-deserved of its reputation. The two main pools accommodate crowds of swimmers at times in mineral spring water that is hot and hotter. Kids love it because the water isn't cold and you can play endlessly. There are designated lanes for serious swimmers and a diving area for the daring.... More
