Quick little road side stop outside of Durango. takes about 15 minutes to get there while heading towards the ski resort. small pull out. FREE! nice color and views. luke warm water, so your kids won't get burned. Informational sign to tell you it's story.

Is located just feet off 550 Highway - not much parking space so be careful. The children were fascinated watching the hot water bubble up!

This is on the side of the road, it is great for a photo opportunity and to see something different, You won't spend much time here except to see the views and maybe feel the water.

I don't believe you can add a photo after your review is submitted. Rest assured, your photo will look like hundreds of others at this attraction.
