Pagosa Springs is a town in southwest Colorado known for its hot springs. It’s surrounded by the rugged San Juan Mountains and vast areas of national forest. The San Juan River, with its abundant trout, runs through town. To the northeast, Wolf Creek Ski Area offers downhill runs and cross-country trails. Southwest, Chimney Rock National Monument features the ruins of ancient Ancestral Puebloan dwellings.

Pagosa Springs is world’s deepest known geothermal hot springs. The geothermal aquifer under the town provides mineral-rich, hot water to 3 hot spring resort and spa facilities in downtown Pagosa Springs – The Springs Resort & Spa, Healing Waters Resort, and The Overlook Hot Springs and Spa. Additionally, the town has fashioned several ‘natural’ pools along the San Juan River Walk in downtown that are free to the public and are most easily accessible when the river is low in the late summer and early fall months.

The Pagosa geothermal hot springs are located on the western slope of the Continental Divide. The sulfur-rich water emerging from what is called the “Mother Spring” has been measured between 110 °F and 144 °F (62 °C). The water originates from 6,000 feet (1,828.8 m)below the surface from volcanic activity.
