Well worth a stop to look at the fabulous rock formations can be busy at times and difficult to park

We visit Jemez Springs a lot (mostly in summer) and we have to go to Soda Dam every time...or have unhappy kids. Always a fun time!

There are similar bigger scale natural wonders in Andes and Inca Bridge comes to mind. This one is very interesting and worthwhile. It is on Highway 4 and there is good information on this site. The build up deposit of minerals is picturesque. It is a shame they do not bottle some of that mineral water right there.

A visit to Jemez Springs would not be the full-on experience without stopping at the Soda Dam and doing some walking/climbing around the rocks and springs. Get out of that car and explore! It's a natural wonder, one of the many unusual geological treats to be found in New Mexico.

I love to take thus route from Los Alamos to ABQ and this particular spot is one of a handful along the way that I always like to stop off at. It's not the coolest pit stop ever but it's worth a stop for sure.

What an interesting formation and it's right by the road with plenty of turn-out space for parking. You can't miss it and it's definitely worth a stop and some study.

Its very crowded so you have to wait for people to get out of the way. Go in the late afternoon, there's no one there and the light is better for photos.

The highway was expanded so all the springs along the road are no longer visible. No soaking anywhere here any longer. The person who wrote the post about them in OCT 2012 clearly hadn't been here in a decade.

On one side of the road the Jemez river cut a hole through the soda deposits, forming a water fall framed by surrealistic shapes of rock, including a mini cave. On the other side, hot, sulphured water springs sprout from the ground and form a pool of crystal clear water. It is a beautiful spot to appreciate the wonders of... More

Incredible little spot but a little closer to the road than I liked. We were able to hike around to the top and it was lovely and we were able to get to a spot away from the road.
