Black canyon canoe trip

Loved it's so much, this is a wonderful trip. Lots of beautiful scenery. We planned a 2 day trip which turned into 1 day trip because of high winds. But I still recommended.

Day Hike- Be prepared with Water and snacks.
Jan 2020 • Friends
To do this hike, be fully prepared with enough water and snacks. Check the weather and temperature, so you will be able to tell if hopping in the springs is a good idea.

The hike takes 2 to 4 hours round trip, depending on how fast you hike, how long you take breaks, and how long you enjoy the hot springs.

Note- if you go counter clockwise, be prepared with a gps/map, because after the hot springs, the pathing can lead you to another total different route or to a harder climb up, which could take you into a hard scramble.

Be prepared.

Ringbolt Hiking Loop with Hot Springs
Nov 2019 • Couples
This trail is definitely more difficult than "moderate". I wouldn't say it was super difficult, but it wasn't easy. My husband and I took the trail off the left first down to the hot springs. It wasn't marked very well, and we kept confusing the trail for the wash. luckily, they mostly go to roughly the same area. In the hot springs themselves, we came upon the top pool first (I brought water shoes and switched to them at this point, and was very grateful I did) the top pool was very very hot! But as you get the the lower pools they cool down. And we stayed and soaked a while. Going down the ladder, I was terrified. It looks sketchy, and the rungs are slippery. I would have preferred to go up that ladder instead. finding the trail after the springs was tricky and not clearly marked. When we did find it, it was a scramble that I mostly made doing a spider crawl keeping 3 points of contact at all times. Then we hiked back up to the parking lot. It was a steady incline, but it was all gravel, your feet, ankles, and calves will kill. The entire hike, with soaking time, pictures, and breaks included, took us about 5 hours. Overall, the hike was beautiful, loved the hot springs, will be back again but maybe take the reverse of what we did this time, and definitely bring more water. Glad we packed a dry bag and had swim things to get wet in, sunscreen, dry shoes and wet shoes, and granola bars. Please pack out what you pack in, seeing some garbage and graffiti was a little sad.

Better than advertised
Mar 2019
The trail, the scenery and the experience was all better than advertised. Was concerned about crowding ( went on a Sunday) and birthday suits and saw neither. This hike had great scenery along the trail, beautiful Colorado River views and beaches, and then the springs. Truly a unique and memorable experience.

Don't skimp on the water!
May 2018 • Couples
At the trailhead, there's a sign advising hikers to bring 1-2 gallons per person on this hike. My husband and I only packed 6 16.9-oz bottles for the two of us since we were trying to pack light. We went about a week before this trail closes for the summer, so it was in the 90s and windy that day. While the dryness and heat didn't much affect my husband and he was fine with his water ration, I could've done with a lot more. Maybe some sturdier shoes as well, but we managed in sneakers.

Some passing hikers advised us to hike through White Rock Canyon to get to the springs as that trail is "less exposed." That was a scenic, shady hike down to the river. A bit difficult here and there, but good exercise. The river was a welcome respite at the end; nice and cool with campers and kayakers visiting (it's also where the only latrines on the trail are).

The trail is not well marked near the river and does not follow the shore, but we were able to find the hot springs (via the ladder referenced above. The water runs down the cliff, so mind that it doesn't get near your nose, as it carries N. fowleri). So beautiful! The pool right before the ladder is the coolest, and they get hotter the farther in the canyon you go.

While there's other trails you can probably take, we were able to climb up (and between) some rocks at the last hot spring pool and pick up the Arizona Hot springs trail back to the parking lot.

Great but sometimes difficult hike to the amazing Hot Springs!
Mar 2018 • Couples
We started this hike at 10am, and returned to our car at 3pm, having spent about 40-45 minutes at the springs. After finally locating the pull off and parking area off Hwy 93 just past the Hoover Dam, in Arizona. You park on the opposite side of the hwy of the path and White Rock sign by the road. You park and cross under the hwy to get to the path. We opted for the longer trail going to the springs. This trail was pretty well marked and a little challenging but not bad. It takes you to the first, and hottest, in a series of the hot springs pools. This first spring was 120 degrees, almost too hot to walk in but as you go from one to the next they got "cooler", more like a hot tub. The last one was more like bath water. We decided to collect our things, carry them through the beautiful series of springs, and head down the steep, 20' ladder to try the shorter trail back to our car. You can walk down to the Colorado River, its very picturesque. You then back track to a sign, which leads you into a more difficult and very poorly marked trail that is the shorter path back to the hwy. We ran into a few people cliff diving into the river who assured us we were on the right path. We hiked with them for a while. We ran into lots of people coming and going to the springs, everyone was very friendly, and we were by far the oldest people trying this hike, but it was an accomplishment for us less experienced hikers and we were glad we did it. The shorter return path gets a little steeper and more difficult at times, with huge boulders in the path and some tight spots to climb through. Overall, other than concern we couldn't find the return path, it was a very rewarding hike, to a very special hot spring, one of the best from what we heard, so I do recommend it. Water shoes are a great idea for the springs, or gym/hiking shoes that you are ok getting wet, if you are doing both ways of the trail, there is no way to avoid getting your feet wet with the shorter path and not somewhere you want to be barefoot. It's ok in the springs, but would prefer water shoes there too. i don't recommend doing this path alone, although we did see one woman going it alone. We would have hiked with her but we were almost done and she was going the opposite way. Between finding the connecting path, and if you got hurt, I wouldn't advise being alone. We understand this trail is closed during the summer months due to extreme heat, and be sure to take lots of water and a few snacks:-)

Great weather, great hike

Pack a lunch and swim wear. Our group took the counter-clockwise route around the trail hitting the Colorado river first and then enjoying the heated pools of the spring on the way back up the canyon. What an enjoyable way to spend a few hours in the Arizona outdoors.

Just for the Hike of it!
Nov 2017 • Friends
At mile marker 4 crossing over into Arizona from Nevada there is a large parking area that is the start of a 6 mile round trip trail that leads to the Arizona Hot Springs. Sure there is a way to take the Colorado River to a small shore line that you can dock a kayak at and take a shirt walk to the Hot Springs, but Hiking is so much fun. The trail was a little bit tougher than a beginner trail but it can be tackled with patience. I can't quite imagine doing the trail in the summer time. If you do bring plenty of water and electrolytes. Very scenic route through washes and rock formations. The payoff is the Hot Springs at the end. Please take note of the hazard sign stating that there is something in the water that can go through your nasal cavity and is known to cause death so no dunking yourself under the water. Just sit and enjoy. Apparently the site allows nudity so be warned. There was also a ladder at the edge that goes to the river be cautious here because I can not speak to the overall durability of the ladder.

Great Hike for Beginners Who Want a Little Challenge
Apr 2017 • Couples
My fiancee and aren't avid hikers but we were out in the area that day and wanted to do a moderate hike of a canyon with great views along the way. We chose this one for it's length and difficulty. We were both able to get through the hike pretty easily, but it was a cooler day (high of about 70) and we had lots of water. Not sure if it'd be as easy if the weather was hotter. Overall though, we were satisfied with the views along the trails of the canyons, the rivers, springs, etc. and we enjoyed the exercise--we were beat by the end.

Great hike with nice views and great ending
Feb 2017 • Friends
This is a solid hike that most should be able to accomplish. For most of the hike, it's a straight walk through canyons with gravel paths. The last 1/4 - 1/2 mile consists of some steep ascents and descents but they are relatively short. Make sure you bring water shoes or wear footwear that you don't mind getting wet. Also bring your swimming suit, unless you feel like half of the people and want to truly get back to nature and soak naked in the springs. The prudish should probably not visit the end of the hike - the hot springs. There are always some who are going to be naked. The hike is better during the cooler weather so you can enjoy the heat of the hot springs. Plan on 3-4 hours to truly enjoy this experience and, as always, bring plenty of water to stay hydrated. FYI - There is a short climb, probaby 12-15 feet, on a metal ladder to reach the hot springs.
