Pagosa Springs Area Visitor Center
Nestled in Southwest Colorado at the base of the Continental Divide, Pagosa Springs is one of the state’s last undiscovered gems. Known for amazing hot springs, abundant sunshine and small town feel, visitors to Pagosa Springs enjoy more than 3 million acres of surrounding national forest and wilderness areas year round.
In the summer, the list of outdoor activities is long. Hike, bike or go on a horseback ride along serene mountain trails to local waterfalls and breathtaking vistas. Raft, kayak or float down the San Juan River, fish in a nearby stream or secluded lake. Pagosa’s 27-hole golf course or 18-hole disc golf course will challenge the best golfers, of all kinds, in stunning mountain settings.
In the winter, Wolf Creek Ski Area, just a short drive outside of town, boasts the most snow in Colorado, averaging 450 inches of snowfall annually for an amazing Colorado snowboarding or skiing experience. Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, sleigh rides or simply enjoying the hot springs are also popular area activities.
