From easy to difficult

Starts off easy but then gets challenging. Really good hike with some stunning scenery. Loved the rope ladders

Once you get away from the main road, this hike becomes incredibly scenic and beautiful. At the beginning there are a few wrecked cars which are actually kind of cool to look at that, after that it is just beautiful desert scenery the whole rest of the way. The hot springs were okay, but there was some human litter- including... More

This really was a unique and amazing opportunity to see an area few do. Every corner of this hike unveiled a new and unique perspective. It was not too difficult from an exertion perspective (but we went on a cool day in May) - we are not athletes but 43 and above average physical condition - but there were definitely... More

Beautiful hike down the canyon, soaring rock formations on both sides. First mile and a half pretty easy. After that a few pretty tough rock formations to navigate, some requiring the assistance of the installed ropes. Hiked in April, temp around mid 80s, seemed hotter. Take as much water as you can carry if any hotter.

We first hiked Gold Strike about 4 years ago. It was fun, challenging and very exciting! None of that has changed, but several things have changed. There is a lot more water than in our previous hikes. This means your footing can be slippery at times, so wear good shoes. The ropes and placement of the ropes have changed. The... More

I'll start by saying I really did my research. I read that it was challenging, and it was. I read that you should wear jeans (not shorts) and bring gloves and I was SO glad that I did. And I read that you should bring a lot of water - our 3L hydration pack went dry 3/4 of the way.... More

The visit to the Gold Strike Canyon was a fun one with my girlfriend and I. It was just 30 minutes out of town near the hoover dam. Some of the scenery looks like they could had filmed Star Wars where there were the Java people. Some climbing of ropes and boulders to scramble down and then back up to... More

My boyfriend and I are regular hikers and we have hiked all over beautiful British Columbia ,the Mount Baker area in Washington ,and many other places we have traveled too. We hike because we love nature and consider the workout an added bonus . Never have we seen this type of landscape which was truly awe inspiring for us. We... More

My wife and I have been hiking regularly for the past 18 months. There are some awesome hikes near Las Vegas. This one is definitely one of the them! Not only is it amazing, but also challenging. It took us just over 4 hours to hike down to the Colorado River and back out. There are some hot springs along... More

I had never hiked in this area so this was good as introduction to how hot and dry can this area get. I got there the last day of October and it was hot enough to make me desperately wish to be out of the sun. I am used to long and strenuous hikes, and nevertheless I was surprised at... More
