How to Get There

7 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.
