Beautiful area. Amazing views of red rocks. The driving was so scenic it was hard to not stop for pictures around every bend! Can't wait to go back.

Excellent drive and wonderful views. The only negative is the speed trap scam run by the Jemez Pueblo that targets out-of-state visitors and/or non-natives. The speed drops from 40 to 30 with little warning and is used to fund this non-casino pueblo. Suggest boycott all...More

A beautiful drive in September/October. Aspens and Cottonwoods breathtaking. Mountains and river make the drive spectacular. Lots of campgrounds and Fenton Lake is a great spot to visit. On the way we stopped for a delicious Indian Taco on the roadside.

The Jemez mountains surround the main highway #4 which snakes through the Jemez valley. Incredibly colorful, it's worth a drive off the beaten path in NW New Mexico just to see them. We stayed at Canon del Rio in the valley, and as we sat...More

Beautiful road trip just 1 hour out of Albuquerque. Wonderful views, through varying rock formations, shop/browse in Jemez Springs, and experience the Valles Caldera. The road winds through Ponderosa pine forests and there is a really nice quick hike into Jemez Falls. Road passes thru...More

The Jemez Mountains is an amazing place to visit. There are springs, camping, and a delightful winery in Ponderosa. The campsites can be found in lower elevations, if you're interested in camping in the spring or fall, and the higher elevations have cool summers to...More

Most of the past reviews have this just right: easily accessible, fairly straightforward hiking in a beautiful location. For those who say this is about a 3-mile hike, it is if you hike in/out. If you want a longer hike, you can hike between the...More
