Hike To This Remarkable Nevada Hot Spring For An Unforgettable Fall Adventure
Most people equate visiting hot springs with warmer outdoor temperatures. However, there is a remarkable Nevada hot spring that is far too hot to see during the summer. Now that autumn has arrived, it is the perfect time to take this incredible hike to Gold Strike Hot Springs. The two-mile (one way) trail takes at least three hours due to the several 20-foot rope climbs through the canyon. As such, this is definitely not a beginner-level or child-friendly adventure.
You can reach the trail head off Highway 93 at the Boulder City exit. The gravel trail starts just before the historic Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, winds through Gold Strike Canyon, and ends at the Colorado River.
Make sure you wear good hiking shoes as the rocks can get a bit slippery, and also bring the necessary traditional hiking items such as sunscreen, a hat, plenty of water, snacks, and a (waterproof) camera.
