I want to add my voice to the chorus of cheers for this place. We went up in beautiful August weather, and the walk was spectacular. There was no one around, which made it all the nicer. There are two large pools — warm, not hot — and two lower pools we didn't visit. The little minnows nibbling on your... More

My wife and I hiked up from Battleship Rock. And I do mean UP. Took us about two hours to reach the springs, but it was a beautiful venture. Reached the springs, soaked our feet, took a lot of photos, ate lunch, and rested before heading down. Got back near the trailhead and soaked our feet again. Great trail with... More

There's a very nice hike from Battleship rock that's about 4-5 miles rt with a fair climb to peaceful 'warm springs.' I wouldn't call them hot. While a number of people were skinny dipping in February and the pools were inviting, the microbiologist in me was concerned about potential pathogenic (bad) bacteria and other nasties. So, I'd recommend foregoing these... More

Spring itself small but the hike to it is beautiful and challenging. We hiked from Jemez Falls to the spring.

This is a very magical place. I just did the hike from battleship. All up hill. Nice soak with a special cleaning from the guppies nibbling on you. Then a relaxing down hill hike back.

We walked the four mile round-trip from Jemez Falls to McCauley Hot Springs. It passed through beautiful country and the Springs were clean and welcoming. I would suggest getting an early start as the springs can get crowded later in the day.

Walking from Jemez Falls parking lot its two miles all down hill. That means its two miles back up hill. Its worth the hike! Bring your own drinking water as there is none at the parking lot.

This hot springs is really not "hot" as it is warm and cool at the same time. These are three separate natural pools all about 500 square foot or so hidden in the Jemez forest. Getting there is not easy if you aren't in good shape - it will definitely let you know what you need to exercise after this... More

The hike to this warm spring was a highlight of our visit to Jemez Springs. If you love nature, beautiful vistas and a wilderness soak, this is it.

Nice hike in from the top of Jemez Falls, then another 2 miles out the bottom to Battleship Rock. Park one car at the bottom and drive to the Falls campground to start the hike. Springs are not hot, but warm, little fish nibble your toes. Watch out for poison ivy.
