Description

One of the most popular springs in the state of Colorado, Conundrum Hot Springs is a must-do for any warm water enthusiast. The views of mountains and fields of wildflowers are superb, especially in late spring. Not to mention, the warm 95-degree waters are inviting and pleasant.

This trail sees very heavy traffic as it provides a fairly easy hike through the woods and meadows with bridged stream crossings. Due to the incredibly high use, all overnight users will now be required to purchase and carry a permit during their stay at Conundrum Hot Springs when staying above Silver Dollar Pond. Check out Conundrum's rec.gov page for reservations.

Half-Day Hike: Follow the Conundrum Creek Trail approximately 8.5 miles from the trailhead.

Quiet in the morning before heading out. Minor nudity and contact highs...

Nice afternoon soak after a long backpack in. Quality company at the spring.

Beautiful area. Less busy on weekdays. Packed out 15+ lbs of trash that someone left behind.

Muddy, Snowy - Attempted counterclockwise weekend of 5/29 (decided to not continue due to snow conditions). Deep snow still above 11,200' (30-40"). Snowshoes and ice axe very recommend to attempt any passes. Large cornice on top of Buckskin pass and lots of snow beyond towards snowmass lake. After 9am-ish bad post holing along all snowy areas, even with snowshoes.
