Conundrum Hot Springs Reviews & Ratings
Not sure why the locals call it a magical secret spot....its well known and definitely NOT worth the hike. Water is slimy, trail is trashed, the hike is boring, and once you get there, you have to do it all over again to get back down. Best to stay home.
One of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done! Hot springs were absolutely picturesque. We went at end of July the first time a couple years ago and wanted to go a week ago ( end of May) and we're super sad that there were too many alerts for us to be confident hiking out. We will definitely be back, though!
The worst place on earth, stay away from it, nothing to see here. Just water, air, clouds - boring. You will hate hiking up, the views blow and once you get here it is like the worst. Seriously, never ever come up here, your best bet would be to just hang around Glenwood Springs or Florida.
About a 9 mile hike gaining 4000' vertical feet. Pretty much the most perfect place on Earth. This person who gave it 4 stars needs a mental evaluation...
