Ten outdoor adventures for those hoping to get away from the glitz, glam and games.

Hit Paydirt At Goldstrike Hot SpringsAnother local favorite off the beaten path,Goldstrike Hot Springs is only for the more experienced hikers looking for a real work.

Twenty-four miles outside of town and 6.5 miles total, this trail has some fixed ropes to help you along, but still requires plenty of skills.

The work will be worth it though: at the end you can take a small dip in some of the namesake springs. Like Lake Mead, they're diminishing rapidly, so get them while they're hot.
