Hot Springs near Winter Park, Colorado
Looking to get away from the trails of Winter Park and relax in the healing waters of local hot springs? Look no further than Hot Sulphur Springs, a 45-minute drive from downtown Winter Park.
The mineral baths and pools of Hot Sulphur Springs have been relaxing travelers for many years – from as long back as the Native American Ute Tribe were running things up here in this part of Grand County.
The first inhabitants of the hot springs area were the Ute Indians, who used these springs near Winter Park for many years. The Utes believed in the healing qualities of the earth-warmed waters and referred to them as “big medicine” and “magic waters”. It was common place for them to bathe themselves, children and livestock in the waters.
