The Waters

  • Deep below the surface of the earth, the heat of volcanic rock is released through countless fissures that spread out through the earth’s crust.
  • At Iron Mountain Hot Springs, there are several natural springs running up to the surface that have been flowing on the grounds for hundreds of years, surfacing between 102 and 109ºF.
  • Large amounts of hot mineral-rich water flow through our 16 mineral pools every day, at controlled temperatures from 98º to 108ºF.
  • The iron-rich waters contain calcium, sulfate, chloride, lithium and sodium, along with 8 other natural minerals.

The Pools
