A very easy stroll but remarkably beautiful, along the East Fork of the Jemez River, surrounded by walls of rock.

Beautiful hike through forest and boulders down to the stream and then up to the falls. Went on a Thursday afternoon and didn't see another soul, but did see a couple of deer! With a few exceptions, the elevation change is gradual making the hike back invigorating but not difficult.

Easy fun trail, out of the way, a rock climbing and bouldering paradise. High personnel traffic

Great place to hike and really beautiful too... But to avoid a lot of people you need to get there early. Dogs allowed, but need to be on a leash. Seems like we were the only ones that enforced that rule, which was really frustrating.

it's beautiful, hard to find springs though. apparently we turned back right before them. would be nice if near end was better marked.

Really fun trail. We did a mile in and back as a storm caught us off guard but it was perfect anyway and the dog loved it.

My daughter and I did the east fork river at the Hiway 4 location. We hiked in about a mile and half so it was about 3 mile round trip. This was on about 6-7 ft snow on and over the river and is one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done. We had a light snow at times and it was just a beautiful day with the cliffs in the backgrounds and no other snowshoers on the trail .
