Why Mountain Biking Near Pagosa Springs is Great

Pagosa Springs is the perfect hub for mountain biking adventures in the San Juan Mountains and surrounding forests. Here’s why: 

Easy Post-Ride Fun

Pagosa Springs is an awesome little mountain town full of charming restaurants, breweries, and places to stay. The town’s small size makes it very walkable and, with only 2000 year-round residents, it’s easy to get a table just about anywhere, even in the peak of summer.  

The San Juan Mountains

Easily, one of the best things about mountain biking near Pagosa Springs is the incredible mountain views. The San Juans are quite different from the Rockies further north in Colorado, and their beauty really completes the southern Colorado mountain biking experience.

Soaking Sore Muscles

Pagosa Springs is so-named for the geothermal hot springs that abound here. A hot springs soak is the perfect way to recover from a hard day of riding!
