Spence Hot Springs - Search Nearby - Added by Nick Garcia

This is one of the smaller, yet equally breathtaking hot springs featuring two separate pools with gorgeous views.

Exit Interstate 550 and head North on Highway 4 heading towards Jemez Springs. The Spence Hot Springs Parking Lot and Trailhead is about 25 miles North off Highway 4. The trail starts on a decline into the canyon for about 800 feet before you cross the bridge over the scenic river. Continue following the trail up a brief, yet steep incline towards the two hot springs. Take a dip and enjoy the Jemez canyon views towards the south.

Fun pit stop!

Easy to hike. We took a short rest here on our long drive. Beautiful views and the littles can easily hike to it!

Fun time

Easy to find. Easy hike. Beautiful views! The water is lukewarm but there is a small cave that is nice and warm. Would recommend. It’s lovely.
