Jemez Dam Road

Jemez Dam Road Professional Review and Guide

"The ride to Jemez Dam is an enjoyable cruise just north of Albuquerque that offers great views of the Sandia Mountains. Riders will arrive at an overlook of Jemez Canyon and the engineering wonder of the Jemez Canyon Dam. The area is rich
with both modern- day and historical attractions.

The Jemez Canyon Dam is located in an ecological area known as plains-mesa sand scrub. The plants that grow in this area can survive in deep sands. Environmental conditions such as low precipitation and rocky, sandy, and gravelly soils are contributing factors to the formation of this type of vegetation community. This area also supports a diverse array of animal species."
