More Info

In the early days, the Ute Indians used this area for healing, considering it a sacred place. There were fifty springs pouring forth thousands of gallons of hot spring water. Temperatures ranged up to 127 degrees F. Later, settlers discovered the hot springs and would bathe in the therapeutic waters. The caves were opened as an attraction in the late 1800s. Today, after many renovations, guests can use three separate chambers built into the rock. Other offered treatments include massages, mud baths, facials, waxing and hair care.
