One Of The Most Dangerous Hikes In The World Is Right Here In Arizona
In 2014, Outside Magazine listed the 20 most dangerous hikes in the world, and one trail in Arizona made the list. It may come as a surprise that the AZ trail that made the list isn’t a real technical feat to accomplish. There are no rickety ladders to climb, ropes to hold as you scale a big boulder, or anything of the sort. The dangers on this trail are of another kind. Take a look, and then think carefully about whether you have what it takes to finish one of the most dangerous hikes in the world.
