The Santa Fe National Forest has been officially reopened to the public on Monday, July 9 at 8 a.m. On June 1, the USDA Forest Service closed the Santa Fe National Forest until further notice due to high fire danger.

Because of the drier than normal conditions this year, fire risk is always a possibility. When camping this summer, make sure you know exactly how to put out a campfire before you leave. Here’s how to make sure it is dead out: click here.

For future reference, courtesy of the USDA Forest Service, below are maps showing the boundaries between Jemez Springs and the Santa Fe National Forest. As indicated by the maps, Village of Jemez Springs limits begin approximately at mile marker 15 near Desert Willow B&B and continue through mile marker 19, just below Soda Dam. However, the SFNF surrounds the Jemez Valley so please refer to the maps for details.
