The springs are in a very sensitive area. Access is up a rough unpaved road. There are rest rooms. The pools vary in temperature but some are very hot. It is possible to sit in the water.

I stopped here about 10 years ago, before it was in Lonely Planet. Beautiful place but kind of crowded these days. And really, do you bathe with your dogs at home?

Offf Hwy 395 on the same road as the Co animal shelter. Exactly as it's called, there are travetine formations and geothermal hot springs, which you can bathe in. Looks to be better managed than years ago, when people would trash the place. I went...More

The hotsprings are a really nice place to chill with friends and meet new people. It's not difficult to find and every hotspring has a different temperature. Just go and enjoy.

It's definitly a good time. Kids are welcome, just be sure to bring some water in case the weather gets too hot. Also be advised that some time some people like to enjoy their bathing nude.

Hey, sorry for not coming back to you sooner! They're outside down a dirt road so yes, path might not be accessible if there's heavy rain or snow but otherwise it's just public land.

I don't think they close. Don't remember seeing any gates at all.
