This Historic Park Is One Of Arizona’s Best Kept Secrets

Arizona boasts more historic sites than we could ever even attempt to count, and some of them are intertwined with nature in a truly beautiful way. Dead Horse Ranch State Park, nestled just outside of Old Town Cottonwood, is one such place. From the unique story behind its (admittedly macabre) name to the century-old jailhouse that sits near one of the trailheads, this underrated oasis is one of Arizona’s best-kept secrets. Just wait until you see all the outdoor activities you can enjoy!

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
