When it comes to adventure in the outdoors, the state of Nevada could be considered one of the country’s best kept secrets. It’s home to the most mountain ranges in the United States, as well as one of the driest areas with the Mojave Desert.

However, sprinkled among the deserts and mountain peaks are numerous natural hot springs for visitors and locals alike to enjoy year-round. Many of these springs offer amazing views, particularly those in secluded, remote locations, however, there are several easily accessible hot springs throughout the “Silver State” as well.

The Gold Strike Hot Spring is a great place to go for anyone wanting to go on a hike and take a soak in a hot spring at the same place. Visitors wanting to take the adventure to the hot springs will need to follow the trail through the Gold Strike Canyon, taking in the scenery of lush native plants, grand canyon walls, and maybe even Desert Bighorn Sheep that will make guests reach for their cameras. Fortunately, this trail is a fairly easy hike, but hikers will want to make sure to watch their step at the sets of ropes.

The Historic Carson Hot Springs have been around for a long time. In the early days, prior to 1849, the local Washoe people believed in the health benefits of the hot mineral-rich waters which bubbled up from the ground. Later, in 1880 the springs were commercialized and bathhouses were built to entice travelers to stop for a while and try the waters. Today visitors can enjoy a thoroughly modern hot spring with large 2 outdoor pools and 9 small indoor pools which can be hired for private soaking. The water is entirely natural and no chemicals are added. On-site amenities include a restaurant and brewery as well as change rooms, restrooms and pool-side loungers.
