Best view from the parking lot right off the road. Striking rock formation that does indeed look like a battleship!

It's an impressive rock with a chiseled appearing face, tall, and close to the road. It's easy to miss the turn out if you wish to stop for closer inspection. Does it really look like a battleship? You'll have to decide.

Definitely pull off the highway so that you can get a good look, safely! This is a stunning outcrop (likely called something else by the local Jemez Pueblo).

This is a beautiful place to take a walk and have a picnic. There are massive volcanic boulders scattered in the river and the imposing rock formation that gives the place its name - although it didn't look much like a battleship to me!

This is a small picnic area along New Mexico highway 4 (or 502 -- long story) just south of Valles Caldera National Preserve, which see, and east of the town of Jemez Springs. It's a pleasant place to drop in for a picnic lunch while you're on the road, and if you happen to be interested in geology, the connections... More

Can't miss it. Great volcanic scenery. Good road through the mountains, easy to get to visit. Stop and take some pictures! Just u the road from the Soda Dam before you get to Valles Caldera.

Battleship Rock is an interesting rock formation. It can be easily seen from Hwy 4. A parking lot is available.

This was our first time at Battleship Rock and we couldn't really find a trail to the top. We asked some visitors on the trail who had been there many times before, and from the picnic area it was apparently a long hike around the back of the ridge to get to the top. We enjoyed walking through the trails... More

It's actually a cool rock that looks like the front of a battleship. Use your imagination. Perhaps I'm a little jaded after seeing Sedona, AZ. If we hadn't been on the way to another attraction we wouldn't have driven out of our way to see it. But worth stopping for a Kodak moment if you're in the area.
