Is there a natural hot springs, not a swimming pool?

I understand that somewhere near the hot springs complex that there is a place where you can soak in outdoor hot springs in their natural state -- no admission fee perhaps? Does anyone know how to find this -- if it exists?

There are several spots along the river where people have place rocks to form natural hot springs. However, local officials have taken measures to stop this. Chances are if you find one of these spots, you will encounter some of our less law abiding locals and might not feel very comfortable in the situation.

Thanks, mtnlife. I was able to find information about South Canyon Hot Springs -- maybe that's something we could try.

There is a natural spring on the way to Redstone. It's been a while since we visited so maybe someone can give you directions and a mile marker number on 133, but it is on the river side (duh), a couple miles before the first Redstone entrance and there is a large dirt pull off. We visited a number of times and hung out with the dogs and never felt uncomfortable, but it has been a few years, things do change. There was also a book on Colorado Natural Hot Springs, your local sporting goods store may have it. DM
