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.

Summer, a season not to be missed in Aspen!

"I came for the winter, and stayed for the summer," is a phrase you'll often hear around town.  The weather is one of the highlights. During the day the temperature hovers in the 70's and 80's, and by evening the mercury will drop into the 60's. Arts & culture enthusiasts will be just as fulfilled as the adventure junkie during summer in Aspen.  The events calendar abounds with activities for everyone, from cultural events to athletic pursuits.

Experiencing all Aspen has to offer is as easy as opening the front door. Join us for a summer adventure that’s anything but ordinary.
