From Los Alamos to San Isidro along Hwy 4, you will see hundreds of variations in geological strata that will amaze you. From snow white to blood red and everything in between. The forest canopy has been somewhat damaged by fires but you can see the rebirth of those areas along with the untouched beauty of Ponderosa Pines and Aspen... More

Worth the drive! From Los Alamos to the Red Rock area south of Jemez Springs is a AAA drive. Too many sights to list just trust me it is a journey. And yes, take that back road south of Jemez Springs nearing San Ysidro (hwy. 485) for a real trip through rock tunnels and cascading creeks.

The area was very serene and beautiful. The drive up alone is worth the trip but stop and see some of the area. We went on the weekend and the place was busy but not overwhelming. The springs were relaxing.

This was an amazing drive! The mountains were so vibrant and beautiful! I highly recommend a trip up this mountain, we stopped at Jemez Historic site which had some very interesting ruins, and then Soda Dam which was just a wonder of nature, Battleship Rock which offered some beautiful nature photos and picnic areas, and then Spence Hot springs (which...

Driving along state road 4, through the Jemez mountains, presented exceptionally beautiful scenery. Well worth a day trip, or even a couple of days with a stay at Jemez Springs.

My best friend lives in Albuquerque. A trip to the Jemez is her getaway from work and school. We made an afternoon trip for photography and touring the area. Good eating close by. It reminded me of Sedona.
