Loved this trail. Fun boulder scrambling in mid Dec. A fav, for sure. Definitely doable. Hot springs more muddy than expected. Trail depends upon a beautiful scenic view of Lake Mead.

We have 4 kids- 9, 7, 6, and 2. The bigger kids could do most of it all on their own. A few times we had to hold their hand but they loved it. There are a few cooler spots with small streams to play in. Beautiful scenery. The 2-year-old had to be held most of the time and passed between my wife and me, but we made it.

Great hike. Might be hard for young children.

Awesome hike with a beautiful "rain forest" in the desert.

I would not call this a hiking trail, more like boulder climbing all the way to the bridge. I hike three times a week and this is not moderate, I would give this a very hard rating. There was no enjoyment for me taking this route to the bridge. This may be enjoyable for some people, just be prepared if you decide to go here. Also, be very careful when you get to the bridge, very slippery and dangerous rocks. If you are going there to see the bridge I would recommend the Gowan trail, short and steep. It is very beautiful there, but I will not be going back.

Awesome hike. Did this on Black Friday and it was still pretty warm outside. All of the ropes used to help you go down or up seemed to be in good shape. The view of the river and the dam/bridge is a great backdrop to a lunch break.

This trail is well worth the work. Make sure to bring plenty of water though!

don't go in summer, i went in the middle of july at night and i damn near passed out from the heat. its a very fun hike with a lot of climbing involved do be prepared for it, bring way more water than you usually would need and be ready for wet shoes.

I'm surprised this trail is open year round. We went on 6/6/18 in 101 degree weather. It was brutal. The trail is not clearly marked at all. We followed what we thought was the trail which lead us to an 150-200 foot dead drop. We wandered around until we found what looked like another trail. Luckily smart hikers stacked rocks which eventually guided us down to the river. The river was beautiful and a welcome reprieve. There is a lot of scrambling climbs, and loose rock, so you need to be experienced. It was so hot, that the tread on my hiking shoes literally was burned off! Coming out, we got on what we thought was the Lone Palm trail, and it took us way out of the way, and away from the direction we needed to go in. We tried to use GPS, but service was in and out. Google couldn't pin our exact location, and the apps for hiking were of no use. We spent an hour by the river, after it taking 2 to get down. It took us wandering for 4 hours to get back to our car. We were almost at a point of calling search and rescue, as we ran out of the gallon per person and 32oz Gatorade each. I don't recommend doing this alone, inexperienced, or in the summer months. Unless you have a trail guide that will actually have you on the correct trail.

awesome hike, sadly didn't make it to the bottom; you absolutely need to bring a rope or have enough people in your group to pull or lift each other up. that part can not be emphasised enough. lots of going around and over boulders.

a great view when you make it! Some shade. lots of rocks to climb over and slide down on.

Awesome hike! After reaching the hot springs, walk maybe another half mile to reach the Colorado River! It is very cool.

Very scenic hike. Not very intense, just very slippery rocks. Great park to hang out for an afternoon with a picnic.

Highly recommend the Pine Creek Trail if you want to climb over rocks and need a fun little challenge! It was absolutely breathtaking-it was as if it was raining inside the cave when you got to the end! Such a gorgeous site to see...

Love this trail! The cool crisp Colorado river waiting for you at the bottom is such a perfect reward!!!

Good trail run. Fantastic views. Enjoyed the ride up too.

Good workout. Took me 2’40”. Used 1 quart of h2o. No issues with getting lost or losing the trail. Lots of loose gravel and rocks made it a little difficult on some of the descents.

I'm so glad I decided to check out this review and find out it is now closed before driving out there.

Amazing hike. I had never rock climbed before, so it was challenging for me and I only got through 3/6 ropes. But no matter how much you do it's beautiful all throughout. I would even go back to complete it if I had the chance.

Nice little hike - lot of scrambling over boulders and great scenery. Wasn’t real impressed with the other “hikes” in the park but this one was worth admission.

Loved this hike! It’s strenuous climbing over the boulders and the scenery is beautiful! Saw a rattlesnake so look out!

This hike is a lot of fun; a bit of scrambling, light climbing and beautiful views. The way down is relatively easy, however the way back up can be a bit more challenging based on your experience level. It requires a bit of climbing, and you will need to go up and around a couple spots where the trail seems to be at a dead end. I actually did this hike twice in a week, as I lost a silver chained dog tag that my wife gave me, and was hoping to find it, with no luck. If someone happens to find it, please get in touch.

First let’s start out that this is a great trail with lots of EVERYTHING you could look for in a trail. As the previous hike noted, past the saddle there IS NO trail, and barely any markers. And since no water was to be found except for some pools in the river canyon. Navigation thru the washes was very time consuming. Running low on water, I ended up loosing the trail at the SW boot trying to navigate the boulder canyon and needed to call 911 to get SAR to help me. The red line GPS on the AllTrails app was extremely unreliable after the saddle. You are on you own navigating and finding the trail to the west side loop trail. As the GPS line will tend to drift you away from the loop trail on the SW corner. Do yourself a favor and download and use the SAT layer map to find the trail again. THIS TRAIL IS NOT FOR UNEXPERIENCED HIKERS

This trail kicked out butts!! But it was so worth it! We went a few years ago in October. It was warm and sunny. Def need to come back and give it another climb!

Bummer, the trail is closed. We tried on 4/22/18, all access is closed.

Love this hike. Good elevation changes and bouldering down lower. Love to sit in the Springs. Definitely worth your while.

How do you get to the trailhead with the construction going on?

One of our favorites! Our boys (8 & 10 yrs old) loved the challenges with the ropes and never shy away from some good bouldering. They are very experienced hikers though. Make sure your children are up for a challenge and that you can assist down and up the ropes if you plan to bring them. One rope in particular is hanging over water and was not possible for them to traverse but it was only a 6ft drop that we were able to lower them down. Be smart, bring lots of water! Canyon temps run about 15deg higher then Vegas temps. There is an awesome fill station with supplies (salt, sugar, potassium) and instructions about 25 mins into the hike to make a "sports drink". All around amazing hike!

Hike is great and family friendly! We love coming here. But brought family from out of state to hike today and it was closed. Make sure you check to see if the trails are open again before you go because it is totally worth it.
