Natural Hot Springs Pool in Juab, UT

The pool tubs are constructed in a way that the hose gets slightly-sulfurous, heated water from the primary source a few hundred feet away.

The source of the spring temperature reaches up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. The unique feature of these pools is that you can configure the temperature of the water by controlling the water flow. You can bring in more cool water vs. the heated mineral water if you don’t really like it to be too hot. It can go the other way around also.

For new visitors, it’s advised to create a warm pool. Then, as you get accustomed to the heat, you can make it hotter. Soakers usually bring extra towels to plug the hoses and command a better temperature control.

The minerals in Baker Hot Springs, Utah came from the heat of volcanic activity that eventually led to the creation of Fumarole Butte, an elevated section along the hot springs road.
