“Just Go!!!!”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

Fabulous hike up to McCauley Springs by Battleship Rock. About 2 miles on a rough but beautiful trail (not too much for this 50 & 51 year old couple in decent shape.) Around every bend was another gorgeous view of the Jemez mountains. Why do New Mexicans keep this area such a secret? Our reward at the end of the hike: Gorgeous warm spring pools of mountain clear water, in a glen shaded by enormous oaks and pines. Dappled sunlight played off the water as the small waterfall burbled. A magical experience.

“One of the most scenic roads you can drive in New Mexico”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

A friend of mine and I drove NM Hwy 4 from Bandelier National Monument to Jemez Pueblo in late October 2010 on a photo tour of northern New Mexico. The fall color was extraordinary. It seems like we had to pull over every mile or so to take photographs of the geological formations, trees, and various scenic vistas along the way. Not only is this road part of a NM scenic byway, it is ranked as a national one as well. The road takes you by the Valles Caldera National Preserve thru the quaint village of Jemez Springs. Hike thru forests, along stream, soak in hot springs, visit ancient native cultural sites. Its a easy day trip out of Albuquerque, but once there you will want to spend much more time. Visit any time of the year.
