Conundrum Hot Springs is a geothermal spring in a remote section of the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness area of the White River National Forest in Colorado Rocky Mountains.
The hot mineral water collects in existing craters as well as several primitive rock-lined soaking pools that have been dug out nearby.
Conundrum hot springs are the among the highest in altitude in the United States. The springs are located in a scenic setting, with views of mountains, avalanche chutes and waterfalls. The larger soaking pools can fit ten or more people. They are approximately 3-feet deep.
In recent years there have been problems at the springs with human feces being left by hikers, campers and spring users which can contaminate the water with pathogens. The forest service is asking that people pack it out on their return hike.

  • If you plan on camping back here to get to Conundrum Hot Springs, then you'll need to get a permit online before you go. The hike is around 8.5 miles on way. Make sure you bring good hiking shoes...

  • Cody is a loser. Probably a pretentious local. Place is amazing. Hike it’s worth it. Water was plenty warm. Camping sites are good, some are questionable, and like sleeping on concrete but nothing the hot springs won’t fix. 10/10
  • This is amazing for a completely natural hot spring. People reviews on here suck , sorry its nature and things try to live? Water was great after long hike.
