Glenwood Springs, Colorado is an outdoor paradise. Be prepared for fun of all varieties by bringing these essential shoes along on your next trip to the hot springs, river and mountain town!

  2. Flip Flops.  Whether you’re trekking around the decks at the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool or the soon to open Iron Mountain Hot Springs, a pair of non-skid flip flops will help you navigate over sun-baked decking and parking pavement, wet surfaces and slippery locker room floors. 
  3. Water sandals or booties. Rafting season is just around the corner; protect tender tootsies from colliding with rocks by wearing either strappy sandals that stay put or neoprene booties.

Off-road enthusiasts can pedal the rugged Jeanne Golay or Boy Scout trails. Whatever your preference, remember to bring your favorite cycling shoes.
