Apple and plum orchards line the ranch area nearby. The hot springs cascade down from one another. They are open year-round for both cabin guests and public access with reservation.

This natural springs is in its 54th year in Colorado, and is still FREE for visitors to use.
Dan Penny originally opened Penny Hot Springs with a hotel and bathhouse on a railroad line proximate to Avalanche Creek. Snowcapped peaks and canyons surround the area.
Visitors take a short hike from Highway 133, but only 12 people at once can fit in the pool (separated from river by rocks).
The pools range in temperature from 83 to 114°F.
The Yampah Spa Vapor Caves
These hot springs are found in vapor caves underground – isn’t that pretty crazy?! Hot mineral water steam baths are hidden underneath Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
