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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
