Incredible hike, but I've seen too many (mostly teenagers) have heat-related issues when the temperature is above 80 F. Bring plenty of water with electrolytes (or at least add salt to the water). Bring water shoes, a hat and sunblock. It is a little too dangerous for kids or pets. Because a wonderful teenage girl died there this summer, I... More

Unless you bring 1 litre of water per person per hour. Yesterday my family and I did the hot springs trail. I had seen on Tripadviser that it was a really nice trail. I wish the trail would of had some kind of warning at the beginning that this trail should not be done in the summer. We really did... More

This is a nice hike but it gets pretty hot and you need to have good supportive shoes - no sandals. The path is gravelly - I believe it is an old river bed and there are some seriously big rocks to climb. The ropes are intimidating but very helpful. Go early. By the time we got to the hot... More

My husband and I hiked the entire trail today (2 hours in and 2 back out). We stopped in one of the hot springs for a little while and enjoyed lunch at the river's edge. I was nervous when I read about the hike being "technically challenging" because, while I am in good physical shape, I am not a "technical... More

Hot springs really exist. The trail is interesting and unique. The obstacles challenging but can be completed by the average athlete. Wear real hiking shoes as the rocks can be slick. There are a few areas where the fixed ropes left there are very definately needed. A fantastic day away from the strip. Hiked in red rock many times previously... More

I've lived in Vegas for 5 years and always heard about the hot springs. A group of us finally made it out there and gosh was it rewarding and such a nice adventure! Our group consisted of one really outdoorsy guy, 2 non-hikers and 3 average/active people. Our expectations was it was an easy hike for the first half and... More

Just back Now picture I have arthritic knees and scared of heights but I made it 3/4 of the way. I am proud of myself. This is an awesome experience. My husband made it the whole way and was impressed with seeing the Colorado River. I waited and rested. The temp. was 66F so perfect for a long walk. Took... More

this was one of the best hikes i have been on.. The hot springs were the perfect temperature to relax, awesome views of the colorado river at the end of the hike. The weather was perfect for this hike when we went, high of 75 the day we went. I was a little scared after reading some of the other... More

My Husband and I went on this hike Sunday October 20th. We arrived a little before 10am on a gorgeous 65-75 degree, perfect hiking day. We both have good fitness habits, and had done some hiking before this trip, but had not done much rock scrambling before this. The first mile to mile and a half are just a trek... More

Fun hike to do. Wouldn't recommend this much in the summer, but if you are here during this time, then do it anyway, because its worth the trip. The ropes are a great addition for those who have not done much rock climbing. I only went as far as the first pool, because it was night time and I was... More
