Soak in natural hot springs, tucked away in the San Juan National Forest.

This free use, natural hot spring on the Piedra River has several 100 degree pools. The springs are accessible via a 3 mile roundtrip hike, often with wildlife sightings along the way.

What Goes Down Must Come Up!

Great little hike down. When reaching bottom stay right to make it to the falls. You will see a three tiered fire pit and directly down to the river there are several natural hot springs! Please be kool and pack out your trash. This little treasure deserves some respect! Enjoy
