THIS IS THE BEST
There are at least 2 nice size hot springs!
There's a 30 foot ladder to climb up.
If you are coming up by yourself. Let me know! I can meet you at the end of the wash.
You need to park at the lot at MILE MARKER 4 after you cross over the BIG Hoover Dam bridge!
Start hiking down under the bridge. Stay in the wash all the way down. Once you hit the Colorado River - go left. Up and around the rocks and come down to the opening. I'll be there in a nice little orange tent.
They have two outhouses down there too.
THIS IS THE BEST SPOT!
I would like to leave Las Vegas on Friday about 7:00 pm (waiting for some folks to get off work) PLEASE BRING A HEADLAMP if you go at this time setting up in the dark.
Come out when YOU want.
Spend nights that YOU want to spend.
You can come out for the day - all nights, one night or ride down in a canoe. I'm fine with all of that.
I will be at the river Friday through Saturday, but Having Fun Linda from Hiking with a Twist will be there Thurs through Sunday. If you want to go early and meet her ahead of time (1:15pm Thurs) and stay Thurs let me know and I will get you all the info you need.
We will have hikes to Liberty Bell Arch.
Maybe a hike to Fortress Butte.
We can hang out at the hot springs.
We can dive off the cliffs.
Do I have your attention now?
This is a 3 mile hike DOWN to the Arizona Springs.
