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.

Visit to Jemez Mountains can be started at Sandoval County Visitor center where one can pick up maps, directions and obtain advice. This is an area of breath taking beauty. The easiest way to explore is via 120-mile or so scenic drive which will take you to many area attractions including Battleship Rock, Soda Dam, Valles Caldera and Jemez falls.... More

The beauty in this place is breathtaking to say the least. Peaceful drive, relaxing and taking back in time to wonder what's stories this place could share. Stayed in Jemez Springs and felt welcomed everywhere. Enjoyed the beauty of these mountains with the springs & rivers running thru and hiking the trails. A must

After a hard rain last week the trees are just bursting with leaves and color! The Jemez River that runs through town is bank high. Add the abundant sunshine and you have the perfect mix for walking around this quaint little town with hot springs as its main attraction. There are about 3 places that serve food and lots of...

In a scenically arid land, the Jemez Mountains are a welcome green island of babbling streams, lofty peaks, lush meadows, dramatic canyons and rock outcrops, and majestic vistas. An area whose natural wonders and deep history deserve several days of exploration.

I've lived in the Jemez Mountains for 24 years, and would not dream of moving anywhere else! The beauty, variety of geology and ecology, peace and quiet, seclusion, best "community" of people and animals ever!

We took the East Fork Trail #137 from the trailhead on NM-4. The ground was covered with pine needles whose bouquet filled the air and then filled us. Trees cast dark shadows. Birds scolded. Cool air balanced a warm sun. An Albert’s squirrel scampered through the trees as our frenetic guide. The trail goes to the Jemez Falls Campground and... More

We drove the highway 4 scenic route and other than my fear of heights, loved seeing the mountains. We had a picnic at Battleship Rock, and while it was pretty busy (Easter weekend) we found a nice spot next to the Jemez River.
