First time in Hot Springs and we really enjoyed it. Loved the natural set up. Sulfur smell took a little getting used to.

Rainbow Hot Springs is not a commercial facility.
They are located in the San Juan river along in the Weminuche Wilderness Area.
These springs are located about 5 miles from West Fork trailhead.
The hike is gorgeous but can be a bit demanding for a flatlander. It is mostly above 8000 ft so acclimation can be an issue. Be prepared to get your boots wet if you go before the end of June.The hardest part though may be getting down to the springs. They are in the river about 50 ft down from the trail/camping area.
There is primitive camping above the spring.
If you are a hiker, this is a must do. You will be rewarded with a peaceful, relaxing Wilderness soak.

This hike is 4 miles long and mostly uphill at elevations above 8000 feet. Wear appropriate clothing, and bring plenty of water. If you are willing to invest the effort you will be rewarded with one of the gems of the San Juan Mountains. If you go on a weekday or very early you can have these springs all to yourself as we did. Weekend afternoons in summer can be busy. There is camping on the bluff above the river, so you can make it an overnight stay too.
