Archuleta County is the county seat for Pagosa Springs and is located in the Colorado sunbelt, just 35 miles north of the New Mexico border and along the western slope of the Continental Divide. The combination of high desert plateau and Rocky Mountains to the north and east of town creates an unusually mild mountain climate. As a portal to the nearly 3 million acres of the San Juan National Forest and Weminuche Wilderness Area, Archuleta County is a doorway to the four seasons of outdoor adventure which landed the Town in Outdoors Magazine's top 10 best Towns in American (2015) and Men's Journal "20 Best Mountain Towns in America (2017).
With a population of 14,029 in the Town and surrounding County, serves as the activity hub for area schools, government offices, commercial business, and parks. The community hosts visitors throughout the year who come to explore the rich cultural history, or to participate in many of the year round actives.
Given its strategic location, Archuleta County is at the crossroads of many archaeological and cultural destinations. We are home to the Chimney Rock National Monument, but also a short trip to Mesa Verde National Park, Chaco Canyon, the Durango & Silverton Railway, and the historic Pueblos of Northern New Mexico including Taos, Zia, Jemez, San Carlos, and others. For the outdoor enthusiast the opportunities are endless: fly fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking, downhill and Nordic skiing, snowboarding, hiking, backpacking, kayaking, 4-wheeling, and much more.
