How to Get There

8 months ago

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.

Soak in the Hot Springs Off the Million Dollar Highway

Colorado / Secret Hot Springs on Red Mtn Pass

You will start by driving Red Mountain Pass, an experience all on its own. It is closer to get to from Silverton, but not by any means too far of a drive from Ouray.
