Bayfield (1889, 6,900 feet), called Los Pinos until 1899, is a quaint rural town 10 miles east of Durango in a grove of cottonwoods and willows on the Los Pinos River, at the northern edge of the Southern Ute Indian Reservation. The main street, Mill Street, is lined with clapboard and pressed metal false-fronted buildings. An old stone town hall has a horseshoe set into its identifying inscription. The stone library across the street is made of the same local sandstone. Nearby attractions include the Rommer Ranch (1878) and the Zabel Canyon Indian Ruins (NR).
