Overview

Tall ponderosa pine and aspen frame this forest trail as it gently meanders through the western side of the beautiful Jemez National Recreation Area. Located in the 1.6-million-acre Santa Fe National Forest, the surrounding woods are high, dense and scenic. FR604 is one of only two trails in this area designated as allowing dispersed camping, and its almost endless primitive campsite possibilities offer plenty of privacy. A short drive from either Los Alamos or Albuquerque, FR604 is a quick destination for scenic family drives, picnics, or camping trips. Nearby, along FR376, are the Cebolla and Guadalupe Rivers, offering laid-back trout fishing that is easily accessible, making it great for young children. Multiple spur roads connect to FR604 for OHV, camping, hunting, hiking, and other recreational uses. There are many attractions in the area, including various hot springs and the Valles Caldera National Preserve, a place of significant geological, ecological and cultural interest.
