    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 be great...  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. Af...  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 w...  more »

    Loved this hike. It does need some regular maintenance since I couldn't get down some of these cliffs. The ropes had been cut and there was no ladder. Either that or go with a group and use team work. Regardless, this was a great trail with amazing views and a very satisfying dip into the water at the end.

    This place was exquisite. Absolutely worth the hike. Do come prepared!!! Bring/wear: Appropriate hiking shoes and clothing. Wear/bring bathing suit to wear in the hot springs. More water than you think you'll need! It's a strenuous hike. High protein snacks. Sunscreen. Hat. The hot springs lived up to their name. They were hotter than any hot tub I've been in. Ever. Enjoy the hike and be safe!

    Feel like an adventurer with this hike, lush canyons, scaling rocks, hot springs and the payoff of cooling down in the Colorado River. You'll need flexibility to get around tight spots, stamina for the return trip.

    be ready for about 5 miles of walking and climbing rocks jumping over some as well.. it's a hard hiking trip that requires preparation and the right outfit.. must have water as much as you can and remember to leave some bottles for those who need in the middle of the hiking there is a stand for who need water but usually all water is taken.. the water is warm and some parts so hot.. must go early morning and leave at least 2 hours before it's dark it will take you 2 to 3 hours to go back to your car again that's another 5 mi so make sure your muscles are ready for that

    Come PREPARED! I did fine with nikes but if you're a beginner or bigger use hiking shoes. Bring pain meds and bandaids, WATER! Your legs will be sore so stretch accordingly. The rope parts aren't too bad. Did this hike with my 1y.o. Nephew strapped to my back, NOT alone though. Almost finished but 2 hours in it does get pretty damn steep and I am a novice hiker.

Where to stay in Las Vegas

Most Las Vegas hotels increase their room rates on the weekends, so if you have a flexible schedule, avoid Fridays and Saturdays and take advantage of package deals that include shows, meals, and gambling coupons. Remember also that if you stay at any one of the lively casino hotels, you may not be able to get a good night's sleep for the duration of your trip. If you come to Vegas to stay but not necessarily play, try one of the non-gaming hotels or explore the quieter areas surrounding the city.
