This hike will take you to hot Springs pools nested in a deep narrow canyon, the trail also passing at the Colorado river.
Overall, this is a 6.4-mile-long hike, with 1,500 ft elevation gain and it took me 2.5 hours.
Highly recommended hike.
The Arizona Hot Springs Trail is about 40 miles from Las Vegas or if you are coming from Kingman this is 68-mile drive. The parking lot is on the north side of State Route 93, about 3.5 miles south of the Pat Tillman Bridge.

I really like visiting here and seeing both the Colorado river the visiting the hot spring pools. They are unique manmade (by sandbags) pools that are clean and deep for good bathing and soaking.
I was under time shortage so I can’t stay in the river or the pools a lot of time, but it was fun and rewording hike.
The climb back to the car was short but it was already hot, and I took it slow.
When I visit here at the spring of 2023 there were many flowers in the wash, It was nice to see all the flowers after a rainy winter.
