The Pinkerton Hot Springs are nature’s gift to the tiny town of Durango. Located a few miles out of town on Highway 550, these springs were discovered in the early 1800s by James Pinkerton. The towns people would use these springs as health retreats as they believed the water had healing properties. The actual spot from where the water gushes out from the earth are covered by a man-made rock pile. The water’s minerals have made the rocks colourful with time. It is just off the road so it is hard to miss such an exquisite formation. Visitors can soak their feet in water and splash about in the stream. The water is lukewarm most of the year but its temperature can often vary.
