Description [Suggest Change]
A prominent 200 foot formation just off State Highway 4 north of Jemez Springs. Honestly not the best quality rock but well worth climbing for the iconic value. Be prepared for lots of (non-climber) spectators as the rock looms over a popular weekend picnic area.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
From Albuquerque, take highway 25 North to Bernalillo and exit at highway 550. Follow 550 to San Ysidro and head North on state road 4 for about 11 miles. If coming from the other direction (Los Alamos) Battleship Rock is about 25 miles past Las Conchas. You can avoid paying the $5 parking fee by parking just off the highway, rather than directly at the picnic grounds.
