The "hot springs" most reviews here refer to are not on the Piedra River! The town of Pagosa Springs has 3 commercial facilities providing geothermal soaking pools. The largest is called "The Springs" and is likely the facility referred to here. It is adjacent to the San Juan River. The Piedra River is quite separate, located several miles west of... More

Can't beat having both the river and hot springs to bath in. Float the river and have a soak after. Good scenery and close to everything.

It's our fault, but we really should have talked with someone beforehand. We hiked down the trail but could not find any springs...our recommendation? Talk to a local/the forest service before you go!

Be careful on the road, I've seen people lose oil pans and slip around in the mud and snow. Very steep drops on the downhill side. A beautiful spot that is just far enough from the road to enjoy the hike. Don't make the mistake I did, leave the mountain bike at home!
