Class 4+ to "Gold Strike Canyon with Hot Springs" 8 miles round hike

  • to
  • Sunset Station

    1301 W Sunset Rd, Henderson, NV (map)

    36.063812 -115.041000

  • MEETING: we'll meet at the sunset station casino at 7:30 am for carpool. Let's keep communication open and if anyone wants to carpool somewhere else, just post your comment.

    GOLD STRIKE: we'll take the 95 south, then a left turn at 93 fwy. Exit 2 is our destination to the right side. A few minutes after the last casino. 

    This trail has Hot Springs on the path. We'll have to go down some ropes to climb down then back up., not too difficult. The only challenge is a big rock, which does not have a rope. Going up this rock is easy. You'll get wet, so be prepare to have extra clothes with you. The Hot Springs are excellent with this weather. This place is wild and we might find unwanted reptiles. Not recommended for children. 

    SUGGESTIONS: bring 3 litter water and electrolytes. Wear sun block, bring hats if want, sunglasses, snacks, a small meal if want like a sandwich.

    REMEMBER: your organizer is a hiker like you, not responsible for accidents that could happen while hiking. You are at your own risk. I'm CPR and FIRST AID certify and definitely will assist to perform my duties if needed. But please be prepare and take care of yourself. As I said before, your donations are appreciated.


    Anyone who'll would like to guide this hike with me is welcome to do so.

    Wondering the same. Message to the organizer didn't go through, there is a 40 % chance of rain for tomorrow.
    I thinking I am opting out of this one! Hope we will re-schedule.

    Gloves are preferable for holding into those ropes. I saw a picture from VegasHikers and it looks like that big rock has already a rope. Yay now I feel better. ;)

      We might do it again on the next holiday coming. I work weekdays and have only Saturdays and holidays open unfortunate.

    Hi Sara, my name is Nick Core. I am only in Las Vegas until the 14th of January and then I have to return to Pennsylvania for school and the Army National Guard. I see that this hike doesn't have a date set, but if it is before the 14th, totally count me in!

    Sara, hope the hike was worth going. I was in Colorado last weekend and looking forward to signing up for your next organized excursion to Red or another location. I know Havasupai, AZ is about 3-4 hours east of us and heard great reviews about their hiking and turquoise falls nearby... that's one suggestion. Keep me posted on the next trip and I'm so down, thanks! Robert

    Sara, you do such an awesome job. I really am looking forward to being able to attend all of your events some day. I know this hike would be a little advanced for me. But, it sounds exciting. I haven't seen a hot springs since around 2005, in Colorado.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
