The only hike worth doing over and over again, so many new ways to hike it, especially if you’re a climber.

Super easy...way too short but neat to see

Did this on Jan 4, 2019. Portions of the trail are not super well marked and you need to do some rock scrambling before seeing the next portion of the trail, so having the downloaded offline trail map was extremely helpful. Overall very scenic and interesting rocks and rock scrambling passages were fun.

One of my absolute favorites.

I love the trail! Its a bit challenging but at the end of the trail, you can see a bridge, and there are a hot tubs to get into. Along the trail, you have to do like 4-5 rappelling.

interesting hike that took me back in time. there are petroglyphs carved into the rocks all along the path and the trail is fairly easy to walk and allows for some exploration as long as one watches out for the local wildlife (snakes!).

Fire wave was beautiful.

Seven wonders was difficult to stay in trail as following washes will tend to get you lost.

We ended up following a search and rescue party (they were there for someone else) on an adventure and eventually made our way out of the canyon.

This trail is absolutely great and its hot springs a must have for everyone who wants to stay in - the surrounding area of - Las Vegas!
We hiked the trail on a nice, sunny but chilly day in January and were pretty amazed how warm it got nonetheless while walking in the sun. So definitely not to recommend for hot Summer days!
We walked it counterclockwise, starting with the Arizona Hot Springs and returning via White Rock Canyon. We enjoyed it pretty much, especially the relaxing bath in the hot springs - which are indeed very hot :D
Definitely worth it! We will come back when we are in Vegas again :)

This is a MUST for anyone who enjoys real hiking. This trail is difficult but certainly doable for anyone who is even barely athletic. My husband and I traveled to Las Vegas in December for a little getaway and did this trail in about 4.5 hours there and back. We go to the gym occasionally but are by no means pros. My biggest piece of advice is invest in some gloves that have plastic ridges on the inside to increase your grip on the rocks as you are climbing over them and trying to hold on. Your heart will definitely race while on some parts of this trail, making it down and back is not an easy task. Your feet will probably get wet and you will definitely come away with some scrapes and minor bruises but don’t fret too much, the experience of this hike will leave you in awe of nature and your own ability to do this hike. The view at the river was beautiful but the springs were too shallow when we went there and we were chasing the sunlight so didn’t have a chance to swim. If you are slow like we were start early by at least 10am to make it back by 3-4pm. It gets dark quickly by about 4:45 it is already dark in the canyon.
FYI there is another canyon called white canyon just on the other side and it has a much easier trail and apparently deeper hot springs.

Such a great hike! I was confused why with this little elevation gain and distance it is ranked difficult, but there’re like 6 spots where you can only get down/up with the help of those ropes. And yes going back up with wet shoes after a chill hot spring session is less fun, but gosh it’s pretty!

Excellent hike that gets the upper body involved more than most hikes. Perfect day in early Jan with clear skies and 50 degrees. Lots of college age hikers but was never crowded. If solo, keep in mind that anything you climb down you will have to climb back up, possibly with wet boots.

Great for a break from the car ride!

Was kind of disappointed with this trail.
Very sandy & confusing. Not that brilliant of a sight compared to others in the area.
Nice short hike but wasn’t very impressed.

This was a pretty cool lil hike. The petroglyphs were awesome but there wasn’t water to enjoy at the end. There was a small dirty basin. Just don’t expect pools of water at the end.
Pros: Breezy hike, shaded, petroglyphs, and a lot to see in such a short trail.
Cons: SAND!! Ugh. I don’t like to hike in sand. No useable water source like implied. Jan timeframe- no birds and a lot of people. I prefer less populated hikes.
Hope this helps. It was a nice add on to a day of hiking

It was really neat to see the petroglyphs, but there were SO many people. I was really surprised to see it this packed at noon on a Thursday.
Too many people to even really enjoy the scenery.

I love this drive ! It’s prefect as a get out of the house drive & perfect for quick stops to view beautiful Red Rock Canyon quick stop viewings. I always wrap up a day hike with this drive so recap the adventure. I also like to just drive this loop when I need to see some Mother Nature.

The people who didn’t like this trail are boof

Incredible Scenery!!

Short and easy hike through sand to a nice viewpoint / overlook at the end. The rocks are very colorful here, I recommend to go at sunset or sunrise to get the best photos! Avoid going on a windy day unless you are okay with sand in your eyes haha.

This is a nice picturesque desert hike to the hot springs through gravel and sand. The spring is definitely worth the trip. The very top of the spring, where the source is out of the rock, is hot. The center pool is very warm and the lower pool is warm. Coming or going, you will get periods of shade from the walls of the canyon. I had been planning on doing this hike for years, and finally did it today. Glad I did! Took the canyon route out and the mountain route back. The canyon route is gradual, while the mountain route is steeper, yet shorter. I may reverse the direction next time, as the hot springs are really relaxing. Word of caution if hiking with kids: some people might be naked in the hot springs.

Fantastic! Like a jungle gym or obstacle course. Worth making it to the bottom. I’m 57 and did this with my 23 yr old son. Needed his hand up or down a bunch of times but it was a blast!

Nice little getaway only 30 minutes from Vegas! Plenty of short trails and overlooks along the trail to stop and explore along the drive to make it longer! Great access to a plethora of longer trails in Red Rock too.

There are two ways down to the hot springs. One is the White Rock Canyon route. It is down into the canyon on the right. The other is up over a mountain. You will see the trail go up and left about 10 minutes into the hike. The White Rock Canyon is much easier but longer. It is fairly even going down with only minor rocks to climb up and down. Almost the entire trail is gravel. To get to the hot springs this way, you’ll have to climb up a 20 foot ladder. If you have a severe fear of heights, you’ll want to take the harder southern route. The southern route over the mountain is shorter and takes you right down to the hot springs. It is much harder and there is the possibility you might get lost. If you take the White Rock Canyon route, head to the left when you see the river. You will have to go over a fairly steep hill. Just follow the yellow arrows until you step into a stream. The hot springs are on the left. Public bathrooms are on the right.

Like previous reviewers had mentioned, it’s best to have good, sturdy shoes with ankle support for this trial. The trail was pretty rocky with different sized gravel throughout.

Also don’t be startled if you see people hiking in their birthday suits. Apparently it’s a thing to dip into the hot springs nude? But anyway, this hike has stunning views, slot canyons, hot springs, and cool wild life!

Lots of cool petroglyphs! This trail was quite sandy though, but don’t let that deter you from exploring it. The end leads to a neat little water hole thing.

Beautiful, short trail with multi-colored rocks.

took this hike in dec 2018 with my 12 yo niece. was worried about the “hard” level, but it was nothing for her. she was able to handle the boulder climbing and ropes no problem. seen a whole family with a 8 yo hiking too.

Easy hike until you reach the points where you need to use the ropes or scramble through the boulders to pass. Still not that hard but it’s a busy trail and we ran into a few bottlenecks where we had to wait for groups with younger children or older adults to get through. The hot springs were great, especially if you’ve never seen hot springs before.

A nice drive on the way to the Calico Tanks Trail

This a great hike, not quite as good as gold strike, but this one has better hot springs. Discovered recently that it is a loop so that was nice.
