What are some of the most beautiful hikes in Arizona?
The Copper State is home to literally thousands of awe-inspiring hiking trails that range in difficulty from beginner-friendly to advanced-only. They're all absolutely breathtaking, but some do stick out as being among the most beautiful the state has to offer. For example, West Fork Trail, near Sedona, is not just one of the best hikes in Arizona; it's also commonly agreed upon as one of the best in the country. It's breathtaking, and you will absolutely have to bring your camera along. Bright Angel Trail, up near the Grand Canyon, is absolutely incredible as well.

Are there hot springs in Arizona?
There are a few, actually! Among the best are Arizona Hot Springs, at Lake Mead, El Dorado Hot Springs, near Tonopah, and Castle Hot Springs - though those are on private property and you must be a guest of the hotel the springs are at to visit that one. Kaiser Springs, near Burro Creek, is also a beautiful hot springs spot. The Copper State gets pretty hot in a few places during the summer months, but somehow, a visit to any of the Arizona hot springs is just as tranquil in summer as it is in winter.
What are the best Arizona canyons to hike?
Where do we even begin? The Grand Canyon State is full of lots of canyons, not only the one it's famous for. That one - the Grand Canyon - offers some absolutely awe-inspiring hikes, though, and it shouldn't be passed up if you can help it. There are also several trails running through Oak Creek Canyon, up near Sedona, and Madera Canyon, down in southern Arizona. Sycamore Canyon is also stunning and well worth the effort of a canyon hiking trip.
