The East Fork Trail is a wonderful hike in the Santa Fe National Forest. The section of the trail that runs from Battleship Rock to Jemez Falls is a popular destination for day hikers and backpackers. The McCauley Hot Springs that can be found along the trail provide visitors with a place to rest and relax midway between the start and the end points. The Battleship Rock to Jemez Falls section of the East Fork Trail (#137) offers hikers a challenging uphill climb with a rewarding view of the 70-foot-tall Jemez Falls. The hike back is a much easier downhill journey with the option to rest your legs in the McCauley Hot Springs (or warm springs, as some people call them).
