An interesting roadside spot

The hot springs is on the side of the road and hard to miss if you are looking for it. It's an interesting and free point of interest to stop and see while driving around Durango.

What you see in the picture, is the same thing as being there. Not much to see here. The attraction is less than 100-yards off the highway, which makes it even less appealing to families. Stop, take a picture, move on. Not much to see here, and in my opinion its not worth the drive from DT Durango. If you're... More

This Hot Spring's is just on the side of 550 outside Durango on the way to Durango Mtn Resort and Silverton. Cool to see warm water just coming out of the ground and running down the hillside.

This is about 12 miles north of Durango on the side of Highway 550. Don't bother using your GPS (it will send you off course) - just drive along the highway and it will be easily visible on the side of the road with a pullout area for parking. The water is only a little warm and there's not enough... More

But other than that not a lot to see. If you're passing by stop but I wouldn't say it worth a dedicated trip, not a lot to see\do.

This is really not worth your time. The "Warm" springs use to be across the street but kept coming across the road so they routed a pipe under the road, ran a 15' pipe up, put some rocks around it and Bam! Instant hot springs. Now the water comes out the top of the pipe, down the rocks and then... More

We'd driven past this one other time and I didn't get to stop and investigate this strange shape on the side of the road, so when I passed it again yesterday I turned around. This is an interesting stop that will provide for cool photos. The water wasn't too hot, and it didn't smell like eggs like most hot springs.... More

A very cool little stop on our way to Silverton, only about a 10 minute or so stop, but very worth it. The water is warm and clear, you can walk down the side a little bit. There's an interesting history plaque to read about it, kids would really enjoy the stop.

We stopped here while driving from Ouray to Durango because it reminded us of hot springs we'd seen near Yellowstone. Spend a few minutes and take pictures. Water was lukewarm.
