Welcome to Pagosa Springs
Mayor Ross Aragon and Commissioner Clifford Lucero
Mayor Ross Aragon Commissioner Clifford Lucero
On behalf of our community, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Pagosa Springs.

Pagosa Springs, Colorado, located 284 miles southwest of Denver, is known for its mineral hot springs, beautiful river and mountain surroundings.

Pagosa Springs is a Mecca to people from near and far. Many travel here to utilize the mineral water for the therapeutic value and recreational amenities that exist.

The San Juan River flowing through town provides river rafting, kayaking, fishing and swimming.

Nearby, the mountains are a haven to those who like the crisp fresh mountain air, big game hunting, horseback riding, mountain biking and cross country and downhill skiing. The Wolf Creek Ski Area, located 23 miles away, receives up to 465 inches of snowfall per year.

Pagosa Springs is a good place to live — offering a tranquil setting. Aside from its beauty and slow-paced way of life, the people that live here are caring and responsible.

I am certain the above mentioned is the reason Fred Harman, a cowboy artist and cartoonist creator of “Red Ryder Comics,” and Pat Parelli, a world renowned cowboy natural horsemanship clinician who has performed for the Queen of England, chose to call Pagosa Springs their home.

Enjoy your stay and please come back.
