If you are searching for diversity in landscape and outdoor activities this season, then Utah is the perfect destination for your summer vacation. You and your traveling companions are sure to have an unforgettable trip by using the Wasatch Range as your home base and Park City Peaks hotel for your Park City accommodations. Your north-central Utah itinerary could be jam packed with festivals, hikes, and celebrations in the mountains but do yourself a favor and reserve some time to catch your breath, relax, and enjoy our little slice of paradise. Perhaps the best way to do so is a day visit to The Homestead Crater for a soothing mineral spring soak in this spectacular geological wonder.
Guaranteed Relaxation less than 20 Miles from your Hotel Reservations in Park City
Just down the road from Park City Peaks, your number one Park City hotel, is the quaint town of Midway, Utah. While generally a sleepy mountain town, Midway does boast one of the most unique and alluring geological features in all of Utah. The Homestead Crater geothermal pools are well worth the twenty-five minute drive from your Park City accommodations. Even though your hotel reservations in Park City include a heated outdoor pool and both an indoor and over sized outdoor hot tub, there is nothing quite like having a soak in natural mineral waters seeping right from the Earth. Veteran visitors will be the first to tell you that the pool at The Homestead Crater is good for the mind, body, and soul.
A Soothing Geological Day-Trip from your Park City Accommodations
The Homestead Crater has been slowly forming for over 10 millennia, as rain and snow seep up to two miles into the Earth’s surface only to be heated and percolated back to ground level. On it’s journey upward, this water collects and dissolves minerals and is responsible for many of the otherworldly limestone deposits common to the region. One such formation is The Homestead Crater – a beehive shaped dome with a hole in the top and deep pool of mineral rich thermal water at the bottom. This pool is fed by bubbling springs nearly 70 feet below the water’s surface!
The pool itself maintains a constant 90 to 95°F, and the hole at the top of The Homestead Crater provides a natural flow of fresh air for soaking visitors. A short mineral bath promises to relax your muscles and spirit while also providing health benefits for your skin, joints, muscles, and has even proven to help your endocrine system through stress relief.
