Explore the Springs

Eight mineral springs have been restored or developed by the foundation in collaboration with the City of Manitou Springs and private landowners. They are not only unique resources, but also are historic landmarks and major attractions to the region, providing an economic boon to Manitou Springs and the surrounding areas.
