What are some of the best hikes in Arizona?
With all the state and national parks, mountains, and natural wonders, you can find many incredible hikes around the state. Here are some of the best hikes in Arizona:
Devil’s Bridge Trail in the Coconino National Forest in Sedona leads to a natural bridge among the area’s famous red rocks.
Seven Sacred Pools via Soldiers Pass Trail is an easy yet scenic trail in Sedona.
Horseshoe Bend Trail in Page leads to one of the most famous scenes throughout the Arizona landscape – Horseshoe Bend in the Colorado River.
Piestewa Peak Summit Trail #300 in Phoenix is a challenging hike with panoramic views from the top.
Hiking in Arizona is a popular activity, and it’s easy to see why. Whether you live in the city or a small town, chances are there’s a mountain or a park with trails to explore. One of my favorite parts of living in Arizona is the outdoor recreation we can enjoy throughout the year. However, hiking anywhere in the state is best done between October and April.
