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.

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.
