The Place In Arizona That Makes You Feel Like You’ve Stepped Through A Magical Wardrobe

Ready to experience a bit of magic in the Grand Canyon State? That’s actually not a difficult feat but if you’re looking to find a place that is reminiscent of the lush landscape described in a beloved children’s book series. While it’s been years since I’ve read any of the books in The Chronicles of Narnia series, I do remember the landscape described as a lush, forested country with mountains and hills. There is one spot in particular that looks absolutely heavenly, a place where you could imagine mythical creatures and talking animals roaming and magic happening.

Lockett Meadow can be accessed between May 5 and October 9 each year. You can find details about directions, fees, and current conditions by visiting the website for Coconino National Forest. When visiting the area, remember to do your part to keep our forests pristine by following the Leave No Trace principles.

Want to check out another location in Arizona that looks like it could be the setting of a fantasy novel? You’ll want to read about our central Arizona pick in The One Place In Arizona That Looks Like Something From Middle Earth.
