Nestled in Southwest Colorado at the base of the Continental Divide, Pagosa Springs is one of the state's undiscovered gems. Known for its three natural hot springs facilities, "Pagosah" is the Southwestern Ute word for "healing waters". With 300+days of sunshine, ancient archaeological areas, and pristine forests, Pagosa Springs offers plenty of opportunities to soak up the scenery and enliven your spirit.
Surrounded by the largest contiguous wilderness area in the country, the Weminuche Wilderness, visitors to Pagosa Springs enjoy more than 3 million acres of National Forest to hike, bike, climb, drive, run, fish, raft, float, ride or explore our endless trails.
Pagosa Springs also offers visitors a rich geological and cultural history with Chimney Rock Archeological Site, the farthest "outlier" of Chaco Canyon, offering a fascinating historical look into the ancient culture of the Ancestral Puebloan Indians and the Fred Harman and Historical Museums both giving and intriguing insight at the rich past.
