The Path + Loop
You can hike to Arizona Very hot Springs multiple strategies. The main lollipop loop encompasses the White Rock Canyon Path and the Hot Spring Canyon Path, starting off from the exact same parking lot. After .4 miles, you will arrive to a split with a signal pointing to White Rock Canyon on the proper and the Hot Spring Canyon on the left.
Most guides will instruct you to start on the White Rock Canyon Path, make your way down to the river, then slice again up to climb a 20 ft 18 rung ladder that qualified prospects to the warm springs. Then you head again via the Very hot Spring Canyon Trail.
We did the hike in reverse. The prepare was to hike again the identical way since it cuts down the distance, but we decided last moment to full the total loop.
The Very hot Spring Canyon Path was steeper, with some free gravel, generating it slippery, although the White Rock Canyon Path is gradual but pretty much fully on free gravel (not fun IMO).
Most of the path is straightforward to observe. We recommend downloading the GPS map or offline google maps. The one particular puzzling portion is in the vicinity of the river. If you go down to the beach front, you require to backtrack to come across White Rock Canyon Trail. The path along the river also cuts back again and forth, so seem for markers (some not together the river).
Now that we’ve carried out equally sides of the trail, if we were being to do the hike once more, we would only do the Incredibly hot Spring Canyon Path down and again. The only downside is that you will pass up sights of the Colorado River from above.
Local Idea: You can increase the hike by introducing the Liberty Bell Arch path, an offshoot of the White Rock Canyon Trail.
