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.

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.

My husband and I went to McCauley warm/hot springs in May 2013. There are two trail heads. We took the trail head from Jemez Fall campground parking lot because it was the shortest trail to the hot springs, only 4 miles round trip. The trail to the springs was 90% downhill and was strenuous in many places. We had to... More

We went with 3 adults and 2 smalls kids. This was a great hike for little ones; 2 and 5. It's a nice challenge for young kids and you have to help them along the way but it's safe. The springs were smaller than we expected but still pretty cool. They were warm and not hot. Some of the other... More
