During certain times of the year, hiking may be the last thing on your mind. But what if the trail was less than half a mile and lead to something awe-inspiring? This short Arizona hike may be the perfect fit for the occasion when it’s too hot (or too rainy!) to get outside and play for long periods at a time.
