Visit Glenwood Springs, Colorado

Glenwood Springs - hanging lake Dads act younger, moms laugh more. Brothers are nicer to sisters, couples rediscover each other. And along the way, everyone remembers the feeling of joy. That’s the power of our water in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

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.
