Goldstrike Canyon & Nevada Hot Springs

EP-P1060980Goldstrike Canyon & Nevada Hot Springs: This moderately strenuous hike runs down a narrow, rocky canyon to a series of hot springs and several hot pools. Going down, most of the route is fairly easy as it descends about 600 feet in about 2 miles. That said, there are several sections that require some 3rd-class scrambling, six of which have fixed ropes to assist getting over and around some large, slippery boulders, a couple of which are much easier to climb down than up on the return. Once you reach the Goldstrike Hot Springs, it is roughly another half mile of tough scrambling (more fixed ropes) down to Nevada Hot Springs and the Colorado River.
