Strawberry Park Hot Springs is a 5.7 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Steamboat Springs, CO that features hot springs. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking.
Nice variety. Gorgeous scenery, totally doable.
My friends and I parked at the hot springs and walked about 1 mile out and back. There were pretty views of river. It was a pretty easy hike. We enjoyed the hot springs as well.
Very nice hike! We hiked in, soaked for a while and then hiked out. Beautiful!
Really nice hike. Very narrow though and best in the am.
There is a trail to the hot springs but this was not it. You can actually drive right to it. There is a cash fee to use it. 15 adult and 8 for kids. Plenty of very clean bathrooms and changing areas. Some pools very hot and some cool to cold. The hiking trail is past the parking lot and hot springs and it goes along the river.
hiked into the hot springs. such a stunning trail. you follow the river all the way there, right next to it. great views. you're on a service like road for maybe a mile or so and then it becomes more like a trail. very remote and not a lot of foot traffic. be prepared, it takes some time getting there but the reward of the hot springs is worth it!
Out of all the hot springs I have been to this one has a pretty natural feel about it. As the other reviews have said the road the springs is pretty rough and they only take cash. Also if you do stay after sundown you will hear some pretty interesting noises coming from all around you seeing as how it's clothing optional after dark.
Don't be fooled by the nice website. The place is a huge disappointment. First the drive was muddy and tricky. Bring water because these rednecks dont have a water fountain. Then the place itself is rusty and rundown. The grossest thing was the feces inside one of the pools and out. Got my kids right out and on the way home. But there was no place to shower! Health Department needs to look into this place or shut them down. Don't waste your vacation, there are other hot pools in town.
What a beautiful, rustic, go-back-in-time Hot Springs experience! I wouldn't consider my experience a hike, but definitely a walk in nature!
We went in November after some good snow earlier in the week. It was in the 20s-30's outside. We stayed for about 2 hours and loved every minute. We stayed in the 2 warm pools-- one probably in the 110s and one in the 100's-- not the cool spring/river that was probably in the 30's! There were a variety of people (probably about 50 ppl there) so it wasn't terribly private. We went during a time so we could see the sunset and the stars-- and enjoy time so we could actually SEE where we were. The evergreens, aspens, sprinkling of snow-- beautiful. Floating on your back in warm water with the clear skies and sparkling stars...bliss!
Need/Bring (This is based on the winter season-- can't speak for the summer time!)
1. AWD/4WD vehicle-- you will take an unpaved, but plowed road and it can get icy.
2. Water to drink- altitude and high temperature leaching the moisture from your body. Duh.
3. Flashlight or glowsticks if you go at night. There's no lights.
4. Swimsuit, water shoes, warm hat (maybe), bathrobe (maybe) towel. Shoes you don't mind getting dirty.
5. Cash- they take no cards.
The Strawberry Hot Springs is a beautiful spot. Located just outside of Steamboat Springs, Colorado it is a must do any time of the year. Wintertime is especially nice. For a special treat, if you go at night with no moon the stars are incredible.
