We stopped by late in the day and started down the trail and it was like being on a movie set waiting for something creepy to happen. I'm sure there were Sand People from Star Wars watching us. Being smart, we realized that hiking an...More

Not for those who are not ready to be athletic and climb. Great scenery. On the way in, it's all downhill which you know what that means for the return trip. We spent about 3.5 hours and it was one of our all time favorite...More

Not sure I'm going to add a lot that hasn't already been said. Beautiful area close to Vegas. A great half day trip, or make it a full day by adding the Hoover Dam and/or Lake Mead. We were a group in our 30s and...More

I was in the area on a business trip and had a day to spare. Absolutely amazing! So worth the time! I did do this hike alone. Probably wouldn't recommend that. Strenuous and isolated for most of the trail. I did happen to catch up...More

Short trail to mineral pool! Wonderful place to stop while kayaking from Hoover Dam to Willow Beach. We had a nice north wind and slow down-stream current..

We really enjoyed this challenging and unique hiking experience. I was a little afraid going into it after reading a lot about it that I would be too scared repelling or I would be too week to go up and down the ropes. Neither were...More

This hike is a great workout; scenic; enjoyable; relaxing and a challenge. Parking can be a little difficult and the exit is not marked well (especially with the construction, it is easy to miss...and once missed, you are going to Arizona to turn around.) 1)...More

This is a bit more of a real hike and we love that! We like a bit of a challenge, it makes it so much more fun! This is not one we would be able to bring our small dogs to though, and may not...More

We did this hike in May with appx. 76 °F and it was almost too hot. Getting down is pretty easy, but you must be aware that it includes some climbing with ropes and you partially walk in the water. After 25 mins. you reach...More

I really don't understand why people can't hike without leaving trash behind. Other than that, this is a nice hike. A few challenges, but nothing too hard. Would be a killer in the summer. The pools were smaller than expected.

If you go early, there are not many people but by 11:00 am...lots. It is very safe, in fact, it is one of the few trails with a community replenishment area.

Gold Strike Canyon Hot Springs (3 Replies)
I'm spending a few days in Las Vegas in September, and would like to visit Gold Strike Canyon Hot Springs while I'm there. Just a bit concerned about whether it's a good idea as I'm travelling on my own. I'm not unfit, but I'm certainly not an athlete and have no experience of hiking. I'm also pretty short (5'1) and have read that there's quite a bit of climbing involved. So I'm a bit concerned about getting stuck somewhere, or getting into difficulties with the heat, and not being able to...More

I can't offer any help or advice about this other than suggest that you post again on the Las Vegas forum. This forum for all of Nevada gets very few visitors.
