These hot springs are the natural ones on the Piedra river in the National forest They are not the commercial operation in downtown Pagosa Springs on the San Juan river that is shown in the picture. If is a about a 3 mile roundtrip hike from a forest service road several miles from highway 160. Stop in to the Pagosa... More

It was really expensive, $24.50 per person. Most of them were real dirty, like fungi settled at the bottom and when you walked around in it, the stuff would rise to the top (hair and all). I recommend going, but only once because of the price. When you get too hot, you can jump right into the San Juan River.

The pools are a bit pricey but you can access every pool for an extra $5. The pools are so varied in temperature it is easy to spend at lot of time in the hot springs without feeling sick or unhealthy. Would certainly come back agian

Came down for a day while we we're visiting in Creede. Well worth the trip. They have the pools at different temps for everyone's liking.it was not that costly, $34 /'person with towel and locker. There was no time limit either. You could even take a dip in the San Juan River too.

We were told you must go to the hot springs when you're in Pagosa Springs. We hadn't read any reviews prior to going but we had reviewed the brochures we found in town which made it look lovely. When we arrived in the parking lot everything looked run-down. The staff that welcomed us were friendly. The setting is beautiful, right... More

Only reason I gave this a low star is simply because of the cost of going here. Adults $25 and kids $14. Ok if you are going to stay more than a few hours, but if you just want to soak for an hour it's a little pricey. I think they need to have an evening special where if you... More

We always love the soaks here. It is well run, clean, and the staff is great at explaining everything. Only complaint were the other guests that couldn't read English signs that said "Quiet".

Boiling sulfer water flows freely from a number of hot springs downtown and the smell of sulfer permiates the air. May annoy you at first but it starts to smell good, sort of wild and natural, once you get used to get.

The hot springs are actually located on the San Juan River in downtown Pagosa Springs. A great place to go after a hike or a day of skiing. Many different pools with a widw temerature range so there is truly something for everyone. If you dare you can even take a brief plunge in the river. Very relaxing and I... More
