#1 marketing ploy for any attraction- talk it up! This wins hands down. Remember this is NM pueblo territory aka rip off /how much can I charge for rude staff and a lack of information. $15 per vehicle - or I’m guessing it could be...More

Very beautiful waterfalls. I suggest water shoes. I highly recommend even if you take small children.

I saw a recommendation for Nambe Falls at our VRBO and was intrigued by the idea of a waterfall in such an arid location. My husband and I drove to the park and were greeted by a very friendly park ranger, who made sure we...More

The overlook route to the falls is a good climb and not worth it. We should have walked along the stream and risked getting wet. This might make the trip worth while. $15 is too much for this one!

Driving on the backroads, we ran into a sign about the Nambe Falls. We drove into a long dusty drive and at the end was a park attendant. We weren't sure what we were getting into and for $15.00 we weren't sure if we should...More

We had to pick our way through rocks in the creek in order to stay on the trail up to the falls. After that, the path was not level and the many steps leading up to the falls didn't have any kind of rails, so...More

I took my mom to Nambe Falls, and we really enjoyed the scenic views as we ascended to the overlook. I found bird watching productive on the way, too, as the trail was not very busy. When we arrived at the top (later morning), it...More

Drove up from Santa Fe for a short hike. It's steep but not bad at all. Very few people there the day we went.

For us, it was kind of a bust -- mostly b/c the hike to the overlook proved to be too treacherous and risky. I'm 55, very fit and have no issues physically, and parts of the trail are well maintained (first bit of the trail...More

No they aren't. Most of this area is not allowing camp fires and a lot if the Park areas are completely closed. Check before you go.
