About Glenwood Springs

Nestled within the Rocky Mountains and surrounded by the White River National Forest, Glenwood Springs is picturesque in every sense of the word.

Known for its geothermal hot springs, Glenwood Springs is an exemplary example of a relaxing getaway. You can start by soaking in the world’s largest hot spring pool and then head over the historic underground spa for a soothing massage.

Since Glenwood Springs is surrounded by forest, it only makes sense that part of the charm is the outdoor adventures. Rafting, kayaking, biking, and hiking are available in spring and summer. There is a vast array of hiking trails, but if you want a real challenge, you should attempt the Hanging Lake Trail; we promise that the views are worth the effort!

Once winter hits, snow sport lovers will come from miles around to enjoy this magical destination.
