California gets all the credit for its springtime poppy blooms, but Arizona’s are pretty spectacular, too! One of the best places to see the eye-popping gilded flowers is along the Bajada Trail at South Mountain Preserve. The hills are blanketed in a sea of gold that extends far as you can see, and it’s easily one of the best wildflower hikes in Arizona.
