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.

We recommend that you call the attractions and restaurants ahead of your visit to confirm current opening times.

Fortunately, this trail is a fairly easy hike, but hikers will want to make sure to watch their step at the sets of ropes.
