“Hot and cold running water”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

On one side of the road the Jemez river cut a hole through the soda deposits, forming a water fall framed by surrealistic shapes of rock, including a mini cave. On the other side, hot, sulphured water springs sprout from the ground and form a pool of crystal clear water. It is a beautiful spot to appreciate the wonders of nature.

Just a few miles down the road you can eat some of the best fry bread in the area, made and served out of roadside booths placed in the reddest background you'll see anywhere.

“Lovely spot”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Incredible little spot but a little closer to the road than I liked. We were able to hike around to the top and it was lovely and we were able to get to a spot away from the road.

“Pretty cool little waterfall.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were on our way to another attraction and came upon this falls. It was quite pretty this time of year with icicles hanging on in places. The falls however was running just fine. Nice photo op if you're in the area but wouldn't drive far out of my way to make it a destination.

“Hot Spring is across the road from Soda Dam”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Across the road from Soda Dam are some very small hot springs. There is a concrete wall erected to protect the road. This also serves as a tub of some sort, and if you really wanted to, could be used for soaking. However it is right next to the road, and the water is warm, not hot. It does have a sulfur, and there is a small spring feeding directly into it. The direct proximity to the road makes this not a very practical bathing experience - and there was no indication of anyone having done so recently.

“Just a photo op”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Soda Dam is an interesting formation, but not much else. This roadside attraction is often crowded and parking can be a real mess. The area is usually swarming with folks gawking and sometimes playing in the water. Not sure about the water quality. I wouldn't plan on any more than getting my feet wet and snapping a photo or two.
