Glenwood Hot Springs Guests Benefit From New Pedestrian Bridge
Glenwood Springs has a new pedestrian bridge and for Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge and Pool guests it couldn’t be more convenient.
Glenwood Hot Springs is always visitor-friendly, but right now, and for the next few months, the Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge and the Pool are especially advantageous locations for visiting guests. You may have heard we’re in the midst of an exciting and transformative road project which by late November, will result in not only a beautiful new vehicular bridge, but a grand entrance to Colorado’s premier hot springs town.
The Colorado Department of Transportation’s project is on schedule and running smoothly. In fact, much of the work is already completed, including the new pedestrian bridge which opened in late April. For guests staying at the Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge, located in the North Glenwood neighborhood, an area largely unaffected by the project, it means added convenience. After arriving in town, Lodge guests can relax knowing the Hot Springs Pool, Spa of the Rockies, and popular activities like cycling, rafting and the best of Glenwood Springs are all within walking distance.
Just steps away from the Lodge and Pool; the pedestrian bridge connects visitors with Glenwood’s bustling downtown. After soaking and relaxing, take a stroll over the new walkway with its clay-tiled cupolas that give a nod to Glenwood’s historic architecture including the historic bathhouse at Glenwood Hot Springs. Also, be sure to make a photo stop at the bump out along the bridge with the view of Glenwood Hot Springs. It’s one of the best places for a panorama that captures the resort from the waterslides all the way to the Therapy Pool.
On the other side of the bridge, visitors will find plenty of enticing diversions including dining along Seventh Street, Glenwood’s “restaurant row,” and browsing though an assortment of one-of-a-kind shops and boutiques.
Another added benefit of staying at the Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge is that it’s right next door to Canyon Bikes and Blue Sky Adventures rafting company, both located in the historic Hotel Colorado. Rent a bike to explore Glenwood Canyon, pedal around town or book a rafting trip without ever having to get in your car!
Hot springs, dining, shopping and activities all within walking distance of your hotel room – now that’s a stress-free Colorado vacation!
