I took my mom to Nambe Falls, and we really enjoyed the scenic views as we ascended to the overlook. I found bird watching productive on the way, too, as the trail was not very busy. When we arrived at the top (later morning), it...More

For us, it was kind of a bust -- mostly b/c the hike to the overlook proved to be too treacherous and risky. I'm 55, very fit and have no issues physically, and parts of the trail are well maintained (first bit of the trail...More

There are two trails. One is short and steep and leads up to the look out, if today is your first day at this altitude the hike seems harder than it should. I was out of breath. (I'm old) and not used to the elevation....More

Driving from Santa Fe to Nambe Pueblo and Nambe Falls is experiencing ultimate New Mexican scenery. The vast views on the mountains and endless horizon are stunning. The actual falls and the short hike to the falls is interesting, easy, quite crowded, and not equally...More

It's a nice place to have picnics and camp out. The $15 per carload fee is a bit expensive for the park. The signage that will take you to the lookup doesn't help. First, we followed the trail opposite the signage and took us to...More

The trip to the falls is lots of fun, but you do get wet and have to wade in the river. Lots of people were trying it. But the trip to the overlook although a little steep is dry and you get a beautiful view...More

I don't think so. It's not a campground.

Hours are Thursday-Monday 7A-7P $15.00 day use fee. I have been and don't believe it is worth the time. Better things to see around Santa Fe. The dirt roads don't get you to the sides of the lake. Very rough.
