At a Glance

Dunton’s hot springs are controlled by tectonic forces associated with the Triassic Dolores Formation. The springs are located on the trace of a north trending fault and encompass an area of approximately 0.3 square miles.

The springs are of the calcium bicarbonate type with a strong concentration of dissolved iron and manganese and a little dash of lithium.

Springs with high mineral content are recommended for various therapeutic uses.

If you plan to go hiking in the spring and fall, or skiing in winter, make sure you pack right for your trip to Colorado.
