Glenwood Springs Activities

Glenwood Springs Colorado ActivitiesIf you’re looking for fun activities during your Colorado vacation, Glenwood Springs has got you covered.  From a range of outdoor attractions to rich local history, plus the hot springs for which the town is named, you’re sure to enjoy your time in Glenwood.

Enjoy the best of the Rocky Mountains!  Whitewater rafting on the Colorado River is an amazing way to see Glenwood Canyon just east of town.  Or consider a hike to Hanging Lake, the stunning green-watered pond that perches right on the edge of a cliff (don’t miss the spouting rock a little further uphill).  
For those who like to go straight up, Glenwood’s multiple options for rock climbing and ice climbing are sure to fit the bill.

During the winter months, in addition to ice climbing, Glenwood offers snow cat tours, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and more. Those willing to drive a little can take advantage of the world class skiing at nearby Vail and Aspen.

If you are traveling with kids, you won’t want to miss the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, where roller coasters, ziplines, cave tours and more await the whole family.

Above all, don’t miss out on the Glenwood Hot Springs.  No matter how many activities you’ve packed into your day, a soak in the hot springs will relax you completely.
