Fall Is Here And These Are The 11 Best Places To See The Changing Leaves In Arizona

In our humble opinion, fall is the best time of year in Arizona because it gives us a chance to prove the rest of the country wrong. Not only is it cool enough to actually enjoy all of our breathtaking scenery, but it’s a great opportunity to show everyone else that we have more to offer than red rocks and Saguaros (although we love those things to death!)

From short and sweet hikes to strenuous-yet-rewarding mountaintop treks, the following 11 places boast the most spectacular fall foliage in the entire state. We’ve even included time frames for when the season peaks at each spot!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
