Arizona is something of a hiker’s paradise; there are more than 3,000 amazing hiking trails to choose from quite literally all over the state. No matter where you are, you’re sure to find something amazing without needing to go far. However, if you’re in the mood for an adventure, you might want to do a hike that, say, ends with a waterfall finish, and in Arizona, that’s actually a possibility. Some of our favorite waterfall hikes in Arizona include the amazing hike to Havasu Falls, which requires a permit booked years ahead of time and a strenuous 10-mile one-way hike. If you’re not the expert hiker you’ll need to be to do that one just yet, no worries – there are plenty more, like the beautiful White Tank Waterfall Trail, within the White Tank Mountains west of Phoenix. That one’s just 1.8 miles long and quite easy. Need something more exotic? Head out to the Payson area and do the Fossil Creek Falls hike, which is just under three miles long, moderately challenging, and leads to one of the most amazing waterfalls (and rivers!) in the southwest.
