6 miles, 5.5 hours in duration, over 1,200′ in elevation change, rated Moderate.
It is always fun to share a hike with family and friends. To share the Arizona Hot Springs five out of five star hike is something special. This hike really has just about everything: desert, canyon, slot canyon, hot spring, Colorado River, beauty and with enough elevation to give you a workout.
This is a well traveled hike and on an early Spring weekday with temperatures in the 70’s we encountered about as many hikers as degrees on the thermometer, which is not to bad on a 6 mile hike (7.5 miles for us according to my health app. We took a couple little side tours.)
