Pagosa is a Ute word for boiling water which can be found coming up out of the ground all around Pagosa Springs.

In the end of September to celebrate the changing of the leaves, Pagosa Springs hosts ColorFest where there is a balloon rally a mountain bike race, and outdoor music.

In the summer, people flock to Pagosa Springs because of its surrounding beauty. Summer activities include sightseeing, hiking (be sure to look for the many waterfalls in the area), camping, biking, fishing, and kayaking on the Piedra.
