Take This Unforgettable Road Trip To Experience Some Of Arizona’s Most Impressive Caves And Waterfalls

Caves and waterfalls are equally awe-inspiring natural wonders, and this road trip leads you to some of the best of each that Arizona has to offer. The entire route is just shy of 550 miles, or 12.5 hours of driving time. We recommend spending the night at several of the stops (many have campgrounds) to get the most out of the trip.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

COVID Closure Note: As of publication, the Lava River Cave and Romero Pools are currently closed to the public. This road trip route is still manageable if you skip over those two spots, but make sure to revisit them when they open back up!
