this trail is actually a well maintained Park road. if the park gate is open, you will need to pay for access, and you can drive a vehicle all the way to the end. personally I don't enjoy walking on maintained dirt roads, to each his own I guess. easy hike though

The views and ease of hiking this trail, make it great exercise for your body soul. It is relatively flat and the dirt path easily walked in supportive sneakers. If you can’t quite make the 7 mile round trip, you can turn back at any point and return the same way you came in. No map interpretation required. Trail is very recognizable in person.

Out of shape hiker coming through. I hiked this trail counter clockwise and I'm glad I did. All the beautiful scenery is out in front nearly all the way down. I will hike this again.

Went yesterday Aug 7th the trail is closed till Oct 1st. Trespassing will get $5K fine and 6 mon of jail time... not worth it to be a rebel. Can't wait till it open again...

Overall I been to this trail twice and it's not easy maneuvering all those big boulder rocks but there is a view at the end that's worth every steps and every climbs. The hot spring is amazing to dip inn.

Went out of season yesterday and got a citation. Worth it

I loved this hike, and its the one reason I don't hate the Vegas area. It was my introductory to the knowledge of what scrambling is and my declaration of loving it. Be prepared to jump, climb, lift, scurry, and/or slide yourself around, over, and between boulders. In other words, be somewhat in shape or you may be miserable. I don't understand the recommendation for hiking gloves. I'm not really sure why those exists unless its cold out. Build some callouses, get your hands dirty, feel the earth. But do bring lots of water! There's very minimal shade, so bring sunscreen and reapply often. Enjoy the drastic difference in water temperature where the hot spring stream meets the cold Colorado River!

Really fun hike and great workout ,it's about 4 to 5 hours round trip ,bring Water ( at least 3 or 4 bottles ) . Be prepare to climb and the best part is dip into the Colorado river ( if you don't like cold water I don't recommend it )
