Best Hikes in Arizona

March 04, 2022

What are some of the best kid-friendly hikes around Arizona?  

There are countless short and simple hikes all over the Copper State that are perfect for hiking with the little ones – even the very little ones! Among our favorite, ridiculously scenic kid-friendly hikes around Arizona are gems like the Hole in the Rock Trail at Papago Park in Phoenix, which is short, easy, and features awesome views of the entire city. In northern Arizona, there are amazing hikes in Sedona like Devil’s Kitchen (under a half-mile long) and the Cape Royal Trail at the Grand Canyon. Head out to Coconino National Forest and explore by trekking the amazing Call of the Canyon Trail or dip south and check out trails at Saguaro National Park like Signal Hill Trail, Valley View Overlook Trail, and more.

What are some amazing scenic hikes in Arizona?  

Oh, Arizona: how do we love thee? Let us count the ways – or the trails. With over 3,000 amazing hiking trails to choose from all over the state, it’s almost impossible to know where to begin. Why not start with one of our favorite scenic hikes? Some of those include the awesome Montezuma’s Well Trail, at Montezuma Castle National Monument. That one leads you to an amazing little place that folks have been using as a serene spot for relaxation for centuries and is well worth it; it’s also very short, at just 0.7 miles long. If you’re at the Grand Canyon and need something to do, check out Bright Angel Trail (which is very hard and suitable only for experienced hikers) or head to the Mather Point Trail via the Visitors Center for something a lot easier and shorter but just as scenic. If you find yourself up near Petrified Forest National Park, do the Giant Logs trail – you won’t regret it.
