Arizona Hot Springs
We had a great day hiking to the Arizona Hot Springs also know as the Ringbolt hot springs back in early January 2020 then again in early March. This hike is part of the Lake Mead Recreation Area so make sure to comply to all regulations that apply. This video was filmed prior to the closures dude to the pandemic.
Here is a little fun vlog we made featuring my partner and man typically behind the camera Cesar. We woke up early and drove out to this beautiful area for our rest day. During this time we were on a climbing trip in Las Vegas Nevada. The Arizona Hot Springs Hike is located about 50 minutes outside of Las Vegas. The Arizona Hit Springs hike is about 3 miles one way or a 6 mile loop with the hot springs located almost in the center of the hike. This was definitely one of the most beautiful hikes we've done outside of Colorado.
On the hike in and out you are engulfed by mountains and crazy volcanic rock. It makes you feel like you are on another planet. Once you reach the Arizona Hot Springs you have different hot pool options depending on what temperature you are most comfortable with. These are completely natural hot springs which is amazing. Hot springs are thought to be fountains of youth so hopefully we got some years back after soaking in them for a few hours.
The pools were created by a local hiker. We had the pleasure of meeting him on our first trip there and he explained how he set them all up. He brought empty sand bags to the hot springs and began filling them with the sand in the area. He the created walls to hold the water and thus created different small pools. Other locals saw his efforts and began helping him and eventually he received acknowledgement from the rangers for his work. If you are lucky you can go out there and meet him.
We met so many great people from all over the country and had some spectacular conversations. Be warned, it is a clothing optional hot spring so if you can't handle some nudity you should probably stay home.
You can manage the hike in some low profile hiking shoes, however once you get to the Arizona Hot Springs you will want some sandals. Also, plan for a longer day than you would expect especially if you are doing the full loop. Bring enough water, snacks, sunscreen and layers for when the sun sets. We wouldn't recommend you do this hike in the summer because it would be extremely hot.
We hope you have an amazing time at the Arizona Hot Springs and please let us know if you have any questions below. Stay safe out there and happy hiking!
Thank you for all the love and support and I will see you on the next one!
