Quick Hike to South Canyon Hot Springs

Rate this Adventure Colorado South Canyon Hot Springs

Added by The Outbound Collective

Look forward to amazing mountain views while you relax in these hot springs.

A short hike takes you to these undeveloped, free use hot springs. While a little hard to find, the pools are great for a hot soak (reported between 100-112 degrees), and you'll have great views as you relax, as well.

From the right side of the turnout, you will walk down a hill. After a stream crossing, you will head back uphill before reaching the springs.
