Jemez River

  • NNML 2019 Day 4, June 13, Thursday
  • Start mile 32, West Alamo Rim
  • End near mile 57, past NM4 crossing
  • Miles walked: 25

Continuing along the ridge, I come to the Stone Lions, a sort of religious shrine.

The route joins the Alamo Spring Trail, and water is running in the canyon. Large rock outcroppings seem characteristic of the Jemez Mountains.

Along Forest Road 287 is a large burn, recovering.The route goes along the south edge of the Valle Caldera National Preserve, overlooking a vast green valley.Later the route goes along the East Fork of the Jemez River, with some rock hopping necessary.One section of trail is closed for forest “restoration”, and needed to be bypassed.
