Millions of years of water carved Glenwood Caverns into Iron Mountain, where today you can tour subterranean passages with amazing cave formations. Above the caverns, there are roller coasters, canyon swings and incredible views of the Roaring Fork Valley. Hundreds of years ago, the Ute Indians used the Yampah Vapor Caves to heal their bodies and minds. Now, you can soak in the healing powers of these natural steam filled caves formed by the mineral hot springs that flow through them.
In addition to the amazing amenities water creates in our community, Glenwood Springs is also home to all the mountain resort experiences you expect when vacationing in the Rockies. Other things to do in Glenwood Springs include hiking, biking, horseback riding, rafting, skiing, skydiving, and zip lining (to name a few). Something magical happens when you just add water to your Rocky Mountain vacation; from the natural healing powers of Glenwood Hot Springs Pool and Iron Mountain Hot Springs, to the recreational paradise supplied by the Colorado and Roaring Fork rivers and the unparalleled beauty of our National Natural Wonder – Hanging Lake.
