The INCREDIBLE Gold Strike Hot Springs hike is in Boulder City, about 30 minutes from Las Vegas and Henderson. At about 8.5 miles and 1,000′ in elevation change, this hike is rated STRENUOUS. There are several ropes throughout the bouldering sections to help with safe passage. Gold Strike Hot Springs trail is closed during the summer due to high heat. Take LOTS of water, snacks, and gloves for the rope sections. I have to say, with so much landscape diversity and so many technical aspects, this is my new favorite hike!
