You will find this to be a unique experience; hiking, kayaking and time to soak in a natural hot spring.

It begins with a three mile hike through desert canyons, followed by a soak in natural hot springs and finishes with an eight mile paddle down the very scenic Black Canyon of the Colorado River.

If you're considering this adventure, here's something that is kind of fun - a 3D interactive Google Earth Tour, a virtual fly-over of the actual terrain that you would be hiking and paddling, with over 50 placemarks with photos.
