In-river hot springs to rejuvenate. One of the best parts of rafting in Glenwood Springs is stopping at in-river hot springs dotted along the banks of the Colorado River. Guides know where these special spots are located and love to surprise guests with an unscheduled stop. Depending on the river flows, these wild springs can be submerged, but for most of the rafting season, they are accessible. To spot them, be on the lookout for makeshift rock walls that keep the pools just the right temperature for warming up midway through a Glenwood Springs rafting trip.
