Whether you’ve been to Mt. Princeton Hot Springs before or not, now is a great time to head up for the day (or a night or two, which ends up being cheaper, actually, if you have a family or can get a few friends together) and check all the new amenities: a waterslide and family pool across the road, new cabins and renovated hotel rooms, aesthetic improvements to the lower pools and, of course, the ever-relaxing rock pools in the creek. Only an hour-and-a-half from Colorado Springs, it’s ideal for a weekend trip.

    I love these snapshots of cool things to do….and so near by. Nicely done.

    Nice work Noel! I remember the tricep workout at the old pool this summer…

    There’s a rumor floating about that the grungy 50’s locker rooms haven’t been updated. Can anyone confirm or deny?

  4. Mark J says:

    Locker room in the lower area are still kinda grungy, but the entire facility is MUCH nicer than what I am told it once was. If you haven’t been in a while, the lockers should not scare you away….the place looks fabbo!

    Looks as if it’s changed more than just a bit since various parts of the family visited in the early 1920’s. The old pool and hot spots were great fun during the ’60’s for a quick dip coming back from skiing at Monarch.
