FIRST, A SURVEY Pitkin County Open Space and Trails will begin a planning process for Penny Hot Springs this summer, starting with an online survey. The goal is to identify strategies to address increasing visitation to the hot springs, located on the bank of the Crystal River along Hwy. 133, downstream from Redstone. The springs are located on open space, across the river from Filoha Meadows Nature Preserve, also an Open Space and Trails property. The 2008 Filoha Meadows Management Plan, which is also due for an update starting this year, encompassed management of Penny Hot Springs. It is posted below.
