  • A wonderful family hike with plenty to enjoy and great scenery. It's relatively easy for the moderate hiker but can get a little risky for younger kids and dogs. The cliff jumping at the end is awesome the the hot springs offer a wonderful escape. Highly recommended for the entire family.
  • Hiked this trail before. Went today 7/24/16 and as per NPS Superintendent it is closed to it being "too hot" from June to Sept. Completely ridiculous. So half of mt Charleston trails are closed due to a fire in 2013 that created some "loose rocks" and now this. How wonderful it is to have a government protect me from myself.
  • The payoff for literally risking your life on a dangerous trail can be rewarding but I would not recommend this for anyone who is not in some level of fitness. Some sections require climbing down a worn climbing rope and there is a cliff that is likely going to prevent you from going down to the Colorado River, it's just past the hot spring itself. Hikers please bring water with you, at least 4 bottles/ person and salty snacks or gatorade. 3 people have died from dehydration on this trail and injuries are common.
  • What a workout. Bring water shoes makes it easier on the way back out. Walking in the warm springs.
  • If you enjoy walking in a peaceful environment then this place is for you. The walk will be worth it.
