Pagosa Springs is a small community in southwestern Colorado, located on the site of a large natural hot spring. Places of interest include the South San Juan mountains, Navajo State Park, and the Chimney Rock Archeological Area.
A high-rated ski resort at Wolf Creek is also nearby. For those looking for more active pursuits, there are rafting and biking trips with snowmobiling in the winter.
Despite its small size, Pagosa Springs is a welcome stop for travellers in this remote part of the country. The town offers a full range of services, as well as some unexpected amenities such as a 27-hole championship golf course. The springs themselves are too hot to swim in, but several local spas offer pools using the spring water, historically throught to have healing properties.
Pagosa Springs is near the border with New Mexico in southwestern Colorado, about 150 miles southeast of Grand Junction and 225 miles southwest of Denver.
