5 Best Hot Springs in Colorado

Located in Ouray, Colorado, the Ouray Hot Springs sit in a valley surrounded by mountains. You might even get views of Mt. Sneffels, a 14,000+ foot mountain in the Ouray area, if it is not hiding behind the clouds. Ouray is not too far from Telluride if you’re exploring the area for the weekend.

Orvis Hot Springs is just south of Ridgway, Colorado, on the way into Ouray, Colorado. This facility has a more natural feel with lots of different pools to choose from.  A massive privacy fence surrounds the facility. It is super fun to visit in the dark and during the winter. And, obviously, no photos are available.
