Hot Springs Hot springs only occur where Mother Nature puts them. With their unique combination of geology and hydrology, Pagosa’s springs are a natural and historical delight. People have been soaking in Pagosa’s naturally hot mineral water for thousands of years enjoying the health, healing and relaxation benefits. The mineral water’s deep heating relaxes tired, achy muscles and relieves pain and tension. Alternate soaking in a hot pool followed by a quick dip in a cold plunge stimulates circulation and dilates blood vessels to help promote healing. When you soak, hydrostatic pressure in the body is increased. This results in increased circulation and cell oxygenation. Additionally, the hot water helps strengthen your heart by increasing your blood flow, your pores begin to open, which in turn helps increase mineral absorption and the release of toxins from your body. Finely dissolved minerals in the water are beneficial to the skin and don’t dry out your skin like chlorine does in hot tubs and pools. Make sure to visit our three downtown hot springs facilities - you’ll be glad you took the time to relax and enjoy! Springs Resort & Spa

Experience the adventure of traveling by a coal-fired, steam-powered locomotive on the same tracks miners, cowboys and settlers of the Old West took over a century ago. Relive history with the sights and sounds of yesteryear for a truly spectacular journey on board the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. C U M B R E S & T O LT E C S C E N I C R A I L R O A D The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, located 45 miles from Pagosa, was originally constructed in 1880 as part of the Rio Grande’s San Juan Extension, which served the silver mining district of the San Juan mountains in southwestern Colorado. Like all of the Rio Grande at the time, it was built to a gauge of 3 feet between the rails, instead of the more common 4 feet, 8-1/2 inches that became standard in the United States. The inability to interchange cars with other railroads led the Rio Grande to begin converting its tracks to standard gauge in 1890.

Wildlife Ohea Graham

WILDLIFE Pagosa Springs, and the surrounding wilderness and national forest is home to abundant wildlife. Sightings of deer, elk, coyote, skunk, fox and turkey are not uncommon. While bear, moose, mountain goat, mountain sheep and mountain lions are less common, they do make their home in our area. Pagosa Country also has a large variety of birds. While we can’t guarantee you’ll see what you are looking for, it is quite likely they will see you! Both deer and elk venture out in the warm morning sunshine. If you’re hiking, it helps to be quiet as you move along. The animals can hear better than you and commonly stay just out of sight. As you come to reach open space, slow down and move over to the trees beside the trail, creep along and look carefully. The best opportunity to see area wildlife and learn more about the various animals, is to take a tour at Rocky Mountain Wildlife Park at feeding time. Located five miles south of Pagosa on Hwy 84, the Wildlife Park is a sanctuary for rescued animals that wouldn’t survive on their own in the wild.
