Four hot springs, all accessible by foot or boat, can be found below Hoover Dam along the Colorado River. NOTE: The National Park Service recommends against hiking into hot springs beneath Hoover Dam in the summer months. Not only is it dangerous to overexert yourself when it's hot, but snakes are more prevalent during the summer.

SAUNA CAVE: A few hundred yards from Portal Road beneath the dam on the Nevada side is Sauna Cave. A long gravel spit with tamarisk bushes growing on it marks the spot. Just past the bushes is a lagoon, and at the back lies a cave.

GOLDSTRICK CANYON: A short hike up Goldstrike Canyon leads to pools and a waterfall that are about as hot as a human can stand. The rock formations are spectacular, but dangerous. "Getting a boat into Goldstrike can be tricky," says Mike Burrell, a fisheries biologist with the Nevada Division of Wildlife who is used to entering the area by canoe. The springs can also be accessed via a two-and-a-half-hour hike from U.S. Route 93, across from what's left of the Goldstrike casino.

BOY SCOUT CANYON: Getting a boat into Boy Scout Canyon--about a third of a mile south of mile marker sixty-two--is easier, but that's all that's easy if you're headed for Boy Scout Hot Springs. "The canyon is narrow, and you have to climb up several waterfalls with old ropes," Burrell says. "One narrow section is loaded with slippery rocks." Getting to a big pool about three-quarters of mile up requires ADVANCED climbing skills. Not recommended for any but the most experienced climbers!
In New Mexico, one of the best areas is Jemez Springs and several other areas in the Jemez Mountains. Some you can easily hike to from the road.
