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.
To learn more about the Bright Angel Trail to the point where it reaches the rest house at the three mile mark, check out this link on alltrails.com. The trail head is located in the Grand Canyon Village just off Village Loop Drive.
Have you conquered this or any of the other most dangerous hikes in the world? (The list above has seven that are in the continental U.S.) We’d love to hear all about your hike – and to see your photos!
