These are nice, bigger pools that are relatively easy to access. You can reach them via Battleship rock, a 2 mile hike; or via Jemez Falls trailhead- maybe a 3 mile hike. Weekdays are not as crowded during summer months and an earlier head start...More

Hiked expecting to find a warm spring but it was lukewarm if that. This would probably be an awesome spring to hike to in the summer but fall and winter with the chilly air just about froze us. Worth the hike to see it but...More

Little fishes nibble on your feet, but the temperature is nice and refreshing after what seemed like a 2+ mile uphill hike from battleship rock.

To cool for the women, but a pleasant locale to relax anyway. The main pools. Boulders to change behind. Make sure to start on the northwest trail head at the Jemez Falls trailhead parking lot.

Long hike zig zagging up a mountainside. Once I got there I was let down, the pools were overgrown and full of alage, I wouldn't even put my feet in the pools, they looked too icky. The area had quite a few empty plastic water...More

The hike up from Battleship Rock on Highway 4 is delightful. The scenery is beautiful, and the enormous obsidian rocks from the nearby caldera are an added benefit. The forest is primarily Ponderosa pine with some oak, meaning that there is a sparse understory that...More

Hiked up to McCauley Hot Springs last week, great experience. I too lost the trail, don't know how, but eventually found the springs and soaked in the pools with a few beers. Highly recommend it to anyone!

I want to add my voice to the chorus of cheers for this place. We went up in beautiful August weather, and the walk was spectacular. There was no one around, which made it all the nicer. There are two large pools — warm, not...More
