Jemez East River Slot Canyon
Hot day? Are you up for wading through a shallow river? Head northwest of Santa Fe to find Jemez East River Slot Canyon. If you’re a fan of swimming holes and waterfalls, you’re in for a rare treat. Bring your canine swimming buddy along for the ride, too. The Jimenez East River Slot Canyon trail is an easy 2.2 miles of strolling through the stunning landscape.
As you can imagine, this trail gets busy on a hot summer day, so don’t expect to quietly float in peaceful solitude. This trail isn’t well-marked, and has been described as a “choose your own adventure” hike. Venture a short way south to see Jemez Falls before you call it a day.
