Soak for free in a hot mineral spring along the Crystal River near Aspen.

This 20-foot pool is surrounded by beautiful peaks, and is only a short distance from the parking area. Keep in mind this spot is popular on the weekends.

How to Get There

Good Chill Hot Spring Summer

Fairly easy to get to if you are in the region. Google maps was pretty accurate. Do not be afraid of the hippie vibes, people there are totally cool and dope to talk to. I wouldn't plan a trip around this spring alone, but if in the area (Aspen, Hanging Lake, etc.) is it definitely worth stopping by and chillin out a bit whilst enjoying a nice view of the mountains.

Beautiful and easy spot to get to. Depending on water flow and time of year the pools could be gone or not the ideal temp. If it's nice out and a weekend this place is packed.

Colorado / Lead King Basin Trailhead

We began our hike at the beginning of the afternoon after about two-three hours driving up the 14 mile road. The first mile of the trail was mild, turning into an uphill adventure.
