About the Experience

Do you like exploring the backcountry and winding your way through the shade of towering canyon walls? Maybe you are interested in seeing ancient rock art from Mohave and Paiute tribes. Does soaking in natural hot springs sound like heaven?

Come experience the secrets of Black Canyon while hiking slot canyons.

Journey down a narrow wash, as the trail meanders through slot canyons where sandstone walls reveal ancient petroglyphs. Hike near colorful wildflowers in the springtime, down to the Colorado River, where bighorn sheep gather to drink from the cool waters. Scramble over boulders and weave your way down through the tall canyon walls toward several hot spring pools.

After a picnic lunch on the beach, relax in the natural hot springs that are known for their healing properties. Lounge in the warmth of the sun while listening to the trickling stream beside you.

Finish exploring the canyon and riverside trails before making your way back to the trailhead.
