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

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

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.

You can use Google Maps or Waze to find the Gold Strike Hot Spring trailhead (not to be confused with the Lake Mead Hot Springs trail which is located in the AZ side). This is a 5 mi round trip strenuous hike. I would not...More

Most (75-80%) of this trip was super easy, light elevation changes with either gravel or stepping rock. The remainder was various levels of difficulty, with at least 5 places where using a rope to shimmy up/down a six or eight foot drop was required. There...More

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.

We did not soak or dip in the hot springs due to how hot it was. The springs that come off the sides of canyon walls were enough to burn you. I love hot water but this was scolding. I would test it just to be sure.
