This hike is challenging with a couple rope assists and slick rock near the hot springs--it's definitely not for beginners. Avoid in summer months. Trail is closed due to extreme heat and the amount of rescues that happen there. Violating the closure can result in a fine.

It was a great experience walking from the car to the trailer kind of sucked from the gravel but once you get over there and you see all the nice rocks and ropes that already there and all the nice hot springs in it is a great experience bring lots of water

Really good climbing with my friend and a guide. Wide selection of routes and shaded areas if you just want to take it easy for a bit. Despite having plenty of climbing closer than this, it was well worth the drive.

Trail was great, with varying grades and scenery. Some wherewithal is required at some points (for example, it might prove tough to get all the way to the Colorado River if you don't wish to get wet), but it is overall a really fun experience, even for novices like myself. Some rope climbing is required. We made it to the... More

Trail started off easy then we got to the first rope. I am not a heights person or an avid climber. Needless to say I pushed through with my hubby. Bouldering. scrambling and going down 7 ropes. The trail took us 4.5 hours round trip. I recommend gloves. Scraped my knees and elbows and was stiff for a couple of... More

Fantastic trail...wife and I completed the trail and it was well worth it...first 25 minutes were easy then the challenge started...recommend bringing gloves for the ropes..long pants..long shirt and extra shoes because your feet will get wet...also bring water and food..challenging trail with climbing down and back up the boulders...have to be in shape or it will be extremely difficult...but...

First if you do decide to do this do this hike, don't follow your GPS. When you get off the freeway exit make a right, not a left. You will see a dirt road that is the right way, keep left on the dirt road you will see a sign for the hiking area. My husband and I are not... More

I love the hot springs along the Colorado River on both the Arizona and Nevada sides. These hot springs are on the Nevada side and while the hike is shorter in length, it is far more challenging having to scramble up and over rocks to get to the springs. But it is worth it! I don't recommend for those who... More

This canyon definitely commands respect. It's wise to read reviews, and come prepared. We adventured down on a Monday, started at dusk, and had a beautiful time. I traveled with my brother, his wife, and our parents. My dad has bad knees and didn't feel comfortable traversing down to the springs once he saw the first section of rope. So,... More

If you want to hike to hot springs without doing a river trip, especially if you’re visiting Las Vegas during the colder months, then Gold Strike Canyon is your best bet. This hike is about an hour from Vegas, off Highway 93. You might want to combine your hike with a tour of the Hoover Dam, given that you will... More
