If in the area, make sure you stop by Soda Dam, which is just outside of Jemez Springs. Parking is just off the road, and is free to visit. Take a moment to explore this fascinating natural dam that has been formed by centuries of...More
When visiting the Jemez area, this is just one of those stops you have to make! Right off the road, it’s easily accessed and fun to walk out to the creek and see the small falls. The travertine rock is an interesting formation and the...More
There is no hiking involved which can be a plus. Lol. It’s right off the highway. You can’t miss it. If you climb under the little cave (above the waterfall) there’s a small one person jacuzzi size hot spring. Super cool! All around the base...More
Easy to find off Hwy 4 as soon as you exit Jemez Springs. Pull off and walk down to the falls/river and salt rock cave. Can be slippery. You can also wasps around the Dam and climb to the very top. Easy in and out....More
Couldn't even stop on the side of the road to look over. They had it all roped off since They Are in stage 3 fire protection cuz of the drought. Almost everything was roped off and closed. But from what I could from the road...More
You have to see this place its so natural and intriguing. I appreciate that they have left it open to the public and also left it to continue in its natural state. Some water runs down alongside the road which really gives it that untouched...More
We were staying in a VRBO in Jemez Springs for the weekend and we decided to take the kids for a drive a stop by here. You have to park on the side of the main road and climb over the railing to go exploring....More
You cannot help but notice Soda Dam while driving along Route 4; you don't have to go out of the way at all.. Just a 15 minute pause in your driving is all you need to view it You can walk about a city block's...More
We will be in NM during the Thanksgiving week, and I’m trying to fit Soda Dam in our itinerary when we’re around SF. Here’s my itinerary - Day 1 - T or C - Tent Rocke - Ojo hot spring Day 2 - Ojo - Bandeliver - Santa Fe Soda Dam is really not a quick stop for either day. So just wondering does it worth it to add it as an additional stop? And if so, on which day? We want to leave enough time for the hot springs so really don’t want any tight schedule. Thank you!

Are you staying in Santa Fe for this trip? T or C is not really a good day trip from SF. And I really don't think Soda Dam is worth it unless you are already on the area, to be honest. On that note, I wouldn't even combine Tent Rocks with Ojo. The state is a lot bigger than I think you realize (the 6th biggest in the country!) and the drive times between these places are quite long.
