Kaiser Hot Spring
Enjoy a beautiful desert hike through towering Cactus and a richly colored canyon to a remote Sonoran soaking experience that most travelers pass over.
This spring is in an amazing setting which makes up for its rather small size accomodating about 3 people. The water rushes diagonally upwards from a 2 inch pvc pipe drilled into the rock. Full sun exposure makes this spot ideal for spring, winter, or fall soaking.
Tip: Hike further down the canyon about 1/4 mile and you will find a beautiful desert stream. The geology of this area is fascinating, and at the confluence resides one of the more interesting outhouses I have seen nestled among a grove of Cholla Cactus.
Let loose. Clothing is purely optional at these remote springs.
From the North (Kingman). Take I-40 E out of Kingman for 17 mile then follow 93 South for about 48 miles. You will cross a bridge over one very deep canyon. park just before the smaller bridge. Hike down the canyon for about one and a half miles to the spring and cooler rivers.
From the South (Phoenix). Take 93 N from Wickenburg AZ, 63 miles. You will pass the Burro Creek campground. Pull off on a dirt road immediatly after crossing the smaller bridge.This road curves back under the bridge for a nice shaded area.
Burro Creek Campground is about 5 miles away.
