This is a nice secluded waterfall in a beautiful mountain setting with several moderate variations to pick on and avoid crowds. It gets shade all day until the late afternoon.

Getting There 

From Albuquerque, take highway 25 North to Bernalillo and exit at highway 550 (exit #242, DON'T miss this exit, the next exit does not come for many miles). Follow 550 to San Ysidro and head North on state road 4 for about 32 miles. As you are heading towards Los Alamos there will be a pullout with a gate (usually locked in the winter) and sign that says Jemez Falls. Park here and walk in 1.5 miles down to the falls. Rap in or scramble down to the northwest of where the falls sits.

As of 2/19/10, there is a "Closed to Public Use" sign posted at the Battleship trailhead.

As an alternative, Bonita/Battleship Falls is still accessible to visit (no climbable ice, though).
