essay bro:

...a couple miles or more north of Jemez Pueblo on NM Hwy 4, turn northwest on 485 which turns into Forest Road 376. Take 376 north up thru Gilman and thru the famous Gilman Tunnels ...within another 5 miles or so stop at an old discontinued forest road... park your hike a short 1.7 miles west up that road. The GPS cords here where you park are: 3546.710N 10647.653W Joaquin Falls cannot be seen or heard from this old roadbed, so leave the road and follow Joaquin Creek. This 30 high waterfall is at GPS: 3547.269N 10648.861W
