Easy hike to waterfall from camp ground. Also accessible from the East Fork Trail. Check out the hot springs in jemez. Not as long of a hike but better springs. This is an easy hike to a beautiful waterfall. The trail is dirt, but there are some exposed rocks; most of these are at the end of the trail. Tall pine trees provide plenty of shady spots. There is a scenic overlook near the end of the trail with a full view of the falls. You can turn around here or continue down to the top of the falls. There is a shallow pond at the top of the falls. Bring your water-shoes and wade in the cool water.

this is quite the beautiful hike, easy paths. be sure to pack water and snacks. wear dirty shoes or water shoes because getting in the water is a must.
