Glenwood Hot Springs is off I-70 exit 116 to 401 N. River St. Measuring 405 feet long, this is the world&#8217;s largest known outdoor thermal pool. The pool&#8217;s mineral-rich waters come from Yampah Springs, once considered sacred by the Ute Indians (Yampah means &#8220;big medicine&#8221;), and are maintained between 93 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit. By the late 19th century the springs had been developed into a resort containing a hot springs pool, bath house and a lodge, which soon became a popular getaway for movie stars, American presidents and other dignitaries.</br>Exercise lap lanes, a children&#8217;s pool, a diving board and two waterslides are featured. A smaller therapy pool is maintained at 104 degrees Fahrenheit. An athletic club and spa also are offered.</br>Lockers, towels and bathing suits are available for a small fee.</br>Food is available. </br>
