Hot Springs?

Hello!

I would like to visit hot springs, but I was wondering where is the best place to go? I am not interested in the resort type locations where you sit in a lined pool, I want to sit in nature!

Thank you!

You posted in the Colorado Springs Forum but this link will show you hot springs around Colorado. See the map for locations. Some of the ones in nature require a hike.

There can be some disadvantages of "undeveloped" hot springs like regulating water temperature and the fact that people who want to sit in nature often prefer to do so in the nude. That may or may not be a disadvantage.

Definitely some risks involved in natural springs. While this isn't exactly what you're looking for, I do like the way The Springs Resort in Pagosa Springs has developed with over two dozen actual hot tubs fed directly by hot spring water, with each pool at different temperatures. Worth considering. Glenwood Springs is also nice, but it's exactly what you're seeking to avoid.

Have fun.

Alrighty, then bring on the spa places! I suppose my co worker and I could *suffer* through a massage!

Mt Princeton Hot Springs and Cottonwood Hot Springs near Buena Vista, about 2 hours west of Colorado Springs. Still pool/spa like but less so than Glenwood Springs. Mt Princeton has some pools right on the creek
