  • Its worth a quick pit stop even if it's not totally natural & it's just by the side of the road so easy to stop at.  more »
  • Pull over and get out of the car, play in the warm water! Be sure to read the information about the Pinkerton's, it is very informative.  more »
  • literally a roadside attraction. interesting to spend a few minutes at and take some pics. It is not a 'natural' spring (the mound was built up).  more »

  • Quick roadside stop on the way to Silverton, CO. The spring is easily accessible and there is some limited parking available. The water is warm and not hot. The color on the rocks look great due to the mineral deposits. Other than this one spring there is not much else to see here.
  • Totally worth a quick stop. Beautiful views and fun to stick your hands in the warm water. It has that nice hot springs smell. It has some nice historic information as well. Good for a quick stop not more than ten minutes.
  • It's a bubbling hot spring literally next to the side of the road. Worth the short 15-20 minute drive from Durango to wander around and touch the water. Not the type of hot spring for bathing, though. Stay on Highway 550 and just look for a big rock pile on the right side of the road (if coming from Durango).
  • The view is incredible but you really have to pay attention when driving or you will drive right part it.
  • Loved it. It's a nice, short stop between Durango and Silverton. It's a beautiful view the water is hot!
