“A fabulous destination for a hike”

Owner description: Hikers can look forward to a good soak at these popular hot springs, which are set in rock beside the West Fork of the San Juan River.
Reviewed 5 July 2011

This hike is 4 miles long and mostly uphill at elevations above 8000 feet. Wear appropriate clothing, and bring plenty of water. If you are willing to invest the effort you will be rewarded with one of the gems of the San Juan Mountains. If you go on a weekday or very early you can have these springs all to yourself as we did. Weekend afternoons in summer can be busy. There is camping on the bluff above the river, so you can make it an overnight stay too.
