For Soaking in a Hot Spring

Conundrum Hot Springs, CO

We're of the mindset that nearly any natural hot spring is good for some therapeutic relaxation. But the soothing waters of Conundrum Hot Spring are a particular standout. The larger of the two springs naturally forms an eclipse pool that frames the 14,000 foot peaks in the foreground, and hosts reflections of a crystalline sky when the water is still. To get there is an eight-mile hike in from the trailway entrance – the perfect way to earn your dip – and there are 16 camp sites in the woods a quarter mile before the springs (number six is closest, depending on whether you want privacy or proximity).
