Connects: Interstate 70, Colorado River
Glenwood Springs, CO – Hot Springs
The Hot Pots Hot Springs, also called the Hippie Dips, were hot springs where the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool drainage water flowed into the Colorado River. These small pockets of hot water were on the Colorado Department of Transportation’s right of way and considered off-limits. The hot springs no longer exist at this location because the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool outflow pipe was moved during the realignment of the Grand Avenue Bridge.
