Quick Hike to South Canyon Hot Springs

Rate this Adventure Colorado South Canyon Hot Springs

Added by

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.
