“A strikingly beautiful volcanic area leading down to the Colorado River and to Arizona Hot Springs.”— John Blackwell
You'll see ringbolts embedded in rocks along the river; these bolts have been there since before the Hoover Dam was built. They were there so that steamboats could attach cables and pull themselves over large rapids. These rapids are now tamed by the Hoover Dam and steamboats can no longer take this path.
Once you get to the Colorado River, the path cuts back up away from the river over to Arizona Hot Springs. At the hot springs, you'll encounter a 20-foot ladder that you'll have to climb in order to continue on the trail where it connects to the Hot Spring Canyon Upper Trail.
