First this is a relatively pricey spot at $15. The signage to the two trails going to falls is very poor. The trail to the overlook is very primitive and has a taxing elevation gain. There really is no sign for the hike up the...More

My teenagers are happiest when they are in water and this was a great experience. The first day we came the ranger told us we would get "wet" if we took the lower trail. He didn't tell us (although others in the trail were told)...More

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.
