13 Magnificent Trails You Have To Hike In Arizona Before You Die

Earlier this year, I came to the very real realization that my parents are aging; they’ve finally reached the age my grandparents were in my childhood memories. I think they, too, are recognizing their ages because earlier this week my dad mentioned that he wants to hike the Grand Canyon at least once before he becomes too old to do so.

So, in honor of my dad’s desire to one day achieve that goal, I’m composing a list of hikes with breathtaking vistas, long trails, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences that every hiker should consider adding to their own list.

Do you have any other trails you hope to hike before your knees decide to give out on you? If you want to add other Arizona places to your bucket list, check out our article The Ultimate Bucket List For Anyone In Arizona Who Loves The Outdoors.
