Water was nice and warm. Not sulfur smell. Right at the edge of the road. Plaque gives a little history of the landowners.

This is literally on 550. We saw it and pulled off the side of the road. It looks just like the photo. Make sure you are watching for it because we didn't see any signs pointing it out.

A simple roadside stop that is a neat natural spot. You need to be watching for this or you will miss it, it is right on the road.

When we went to durango had a fun time seeing the pinkerton hot springs. To feel the warm water coming out and cascading down was amazing. Suggest anyone passing through should stop it is a quick and easily accessible site.

We drove by the hot springs, turn around, and had a look. The bubbling springs is lovely and the rock shield is extremely colorful. For a quick stop, there's not a lot to see, but it is interesting enough to stop.

This "attraction" is a road-side hot springs that runs over a massive rock. If you aren't looking, you will drive right by it. It is easily accessible and very pretty, particularly in the early morning or late evening light. The water runs fairly hot, but...More

when the add said it was open 24 hours, little did we know because it was on the side of the road. We almost missed it driving past and could not believe how cheesy this thing is....do just that, drive by and keep on going.

I don't believe you can add a photo after your review is submitted. Rest assured, your photo will look like hundreds of others at this attraction.
