Trail to at least third bridge has been cleared of down fall, easy hike after first steep climb out of parking area. Beautiful areas of lush, tall wild flowers. West Fork in great shape. Very open now, not much tree cover, plan for sun.

Spring and area is nice. Did the out and back as a trail run. Beautiful. A lot of the area was hit by a forest fire, probably after pine beetle infestation. Following a natural process, the dead trees dried out and became brittle. Then when...More

Had never been to a hot springs before this space was amazing. Price was within our budget and we spend most of the day soaking in various springs of varying temperatures. Great place to soak way all your aches and pains and problems.

The hot springs are a Must-Visit if you're in Pagosa Springs or nearby. They have natural springs ranging in temperature with a swift stream running nearby. It's gorgeous and relaxing. Definitely visit here if you're looking to relax for a while.

I had gone to the Hot Springs a few years ago. At the time, they weren't as hard to find because the vegetation wasn't so high. This year, I wanted to go again. My husband, I and our 10 year old grandson took off to...More

Great little hike, only five miles, good camp spots, this is a backpacking, no car camping. There is a couple of natural hot springs, and they are free to use, but clothing is optional.

It is a 4.5 to 5 mile moderate hike to the springs. I have been going for many years and the pool was set down a hill alongside the river. Beautiful. A few years back we hiked up to the springs and was disappointed to...More

The rainbow trail is a nice long hike through aspen and conifer forests that includes several nice water crossings with a great trestle bridge over one of the crossings. However, the springs are not what you are probably thinking they are. It is a small...More
