Arizona Hot Spring ladder temporarily closed
The ladder on the Arizona Hot Spring trail at Lake Mead National Recreation Area has been temporarily closed. The ladder was washed out during a recent flood and is closed in the interest of public and employee safety, a park representative said.
During the closure, visitors will not be able to reach the hot spring from the Colorado River. Access will only be possible by hiking the very strenuous 2.5-mile Arizona Hot Spring Trail from the U.S. Highway 93 trailhead.
The ladder is scheduled to reopen by April 16.
