Winter Stops Along the Hot Springs Loop
The magic of unwinding in a steaming hot spring as snowflakes fall from the sky is one of the greatest joys of winter in Colorado. Hop on the Colorado Historic Hot Springs Loop to discover some of the state’s best winter soaking locales — and spend your time in between dips enjoying some quintessential cold-season activities.
Travel Like a Local: There are special places and unique vistas around nearly every Colorado corner. You can help ensure these places exist for generations to come by staying on roads and trails, keeping speeds in check, leaving campsites and picnic spots just as you found them, and following instructional signs while you’re out and about in our state.
Start in Glenwood: Start your hot-springs trek on Glenwood Springs before heading on to Ouray on Day 2.
Make Your Way to Pagosa Springs: Take the scenic 3-hour drive to Pagosa Springs for more hot springs and winter adventure!
Head to Buena Vista:
Once there, donate time or money at the Ark-Valley Humane Society before exploring the area. The lifesaving work of Ark-Valley Humane Society is only possible because of donors and volunteers.
