The Unrivaled Canyon Hike In Arizona Everyone Should Take At Least Once

Arizona is a land of canyons, where a very patient nature carves deep into the earth to create new routes and beautiful scenery. We’re fortunate to have literally dozens of these places scattered around the state, from the epic Grand Canyon to hidden slot canyons to the many little canyons that see few humans each year.

Northern Arizona is especially well-known for its scenic canyons, which feature arid, almost barren landscapes with red sandstone contrasting with a bright blue sky. It’s perfect for hiking and we’re going to take a look at one area that shows this classic, beautiful scenery in a relatively short hike.

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:
