Arizona Hot Spring and Slot Canyon in Lake Mead, Nevada
Arizona Hot Spring is in a dramatic slot canyon that forms several hot spring pools near the Colorado River. The spring discharges highly mineralized water at a balmy temperature of roughly 111 degrees Fahrenheit.
The hike to the springs is flat and largely easy, yet quite picturesque as you follow along one of the most stunning stretches of the Colorado River. Once you enter the slot canyon, the hike becomes even more beautiful as you hike through progressively warmer waterfalls until you reach the pool area. The hot spring itself consists of three pools of increasing temperature. It tends to be a bit crowded, so the earlier you arrive, the better. Also, remember not to dunk your head… A brain-eating amoeba has been found in these waters and it can enter through your nose (although this is extremely rare).
