Hike To The Eroded Remnants Of An Ancient Volcano On Red Mountain Trail In Arizona

Arizona probably isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you think about volcanoes, but we actually have a handful. Among them is Red Mountain, an ancient cinder cone believed to be over a million years old. It has a distinct shape that differs greatly from other landforms of its kind, and you can hike into the unique geological formation to see it firsthand.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
