This Magical Waterfall Campground In New Mexico Is Unforgettable

Although New Mexico has quite a few waterfalls, reaching them often involves a lengthy hike. That’s not the case with Jemez Falls, a 70-foot-high waterfall hidden in the Jemez Mountains. The overlook is only a short jaunt away from the road and nearby campground.

While we don’t recommend cliff jumping – it’s really dangerous – this clip gives you a glimpse of the beauty surrounding Jemez Falls.

The small town of Jemez Springs is nearby and it offers a surprising amount of attractions, given its diminutive size. If you continue along the scenic byway in that direction, be sure to pause at Soda Dam and also the Gilman Tunnels.

Have you ever stayed at Jemez Falls Campground or visited this waterfall?
