I would rate this trail easy. Which was exactly what I was looking for bringing my kiddos. I was able to drive to the trailhead with my Honda Accord but I would recommend a vehicle with higher clearance, the dirt road is definitely bumpy and I had to drive very slow. The trail is very well maintained. There was a bench at the top with some info on the different layers of rock in the mountains nearby which I enjoyed reading the facts about.

Amazing views. Easy trail for everyone.

This is my favorite hike in the Las Vegas area. It starts off pretty easy, but after a short while you have to climb down some ropes to continue on and it progressively gets harder. It is really a beautiful hike. The hot springs are really nice and relaxing, but there's a lot of traffic through here so you'll be lucky if you can get into one.

This is a magical trail! Along the way down to Black Canyon you'll pass many canyon walls and formations, big horn sheep, boulders to climb over, and many hot springs including the "Venus Cave." My mother told me that the "Venus Cave" has been used for a spiritual rebirthing ritual. The cave entrance resembles the female genitalia (see pictures). You swim unclothed through a five foot underwater tunnel (vagina) which opens up into a dark cave called the "womb" where you float on your back in the 98 degree water and meditate. When you are ready to come out, you swim back through the the tunnel and you are reborn.

Great and easy to walk

Awesome hike. Some fun scrambling if you want. Ropes to help you up and down. Not so much for kids, people tend to get naked in the hot springs.

very enjoyable hike! it starts off easy but by the end you are scaling down some surprisingly big rocks. be careful and be able to climb up some boulders with only some rope as help.

Great hike. hiked many times. ppl please pack it in pack it out. also be aware of the lack of daylight. allow yourself enough time to get in and out. novice hikers may take around 3-4 hours round-trip. more experienced hikers can do it in Two. always amazing views and ppl from around the world. Shout out Germany.

Fun family-friendly walk with Great Lake views and local history.

there is no longer access to the river. You get to within about a few hundred yards I imagine, and then you get to where a rope MIGHT have been, before an insane drop off (at least 30 ft). It looks like there may have been a rope here before, and even if there was, this is some expert-level stuff. The walk there is nice, but you don't get to even see the river at the end. Do not take this Trail. You will be disappointed. Not worth the required effort. Also, the hot springs have dried up.

So much fun! Bring water and wear shoes with good traction. Some of the rock drop offs are slick.

Wow! Great hike recommended by a local Vegas citizen. Took 3+ hours there and back. Several hit springs you can relax in too. Strenuous climbing and scrambling. View of Colorado River is breathtaking.

Fantastic Hike! Very Challenging. Great workout for the whole body. We completed it in 5 hours with an hour break. We are a couple in our 60's. I needed a little help from Hubby to get up and down the ropes and slides but we came through it unscathed. Tired but totally satisfied. The hot water that comes out of the rocks at the river over towards the bridge is scalding hot. Don't miss it!

My favorite and most challenging trail around the Vegas Valley and can be safe if dressed appropriately and hiking with enough water. Give yourself at least 30-60 min at the end to enjoy the view and have a lunch and if you go over to the right side by the rocks the water has warm pockets all around the edge of the Colorado River.

Beautiful hotsprings near vegas; but go Early to avoid lots of other hikers

Hard. Beautiful. Some climbing ropes and scrambling. It took us a solid 5 hours down to the river and back - 4 adults and 1 child. Pack snacks and plenty of water.

fun and hard

Super fun. Only challenge is some of the ropes down slippery rocks.

You have to be conditioned, and in shape. I've done this hike out of shape and thought I might die, and I've done it in shape and it was a lot more fun. I LOVE THIS HIKE!! Bring a bathing suit so you can enjoy the hot springs. Please don't bring dogs or small children.
