The Bright Angel Trail Is The Single Most Dangerous Hike In All Of Arizona

Arizona has no shortage of dangerous hikes, but one stands out above all the rest. Located in the Grand Canyon, Bright Angel Trail sees more rescues and 911 calls than any other trail in the state. Between its length, elevation, and lack of shade, this popular hike is a perfect storm of perilous factors.
