The Little-Known Ruins In Arizona You Can Only Reach By Hiking This 1.6-Mile Trail
If you love exploring ancient ruins, there are few better places to be than Arizona. Our state is brimming with the remains of lost (but not forgotten) civilizations. One of the most underrated hikes to ancient ruins in Arizona leads to the Sears Kay Ruins near Scottsdale. You will see a 40-room Hohokam village last occupied 1,000 years ago, and it serves as a portal into ancient history.
Feel free to take photographs, but please remember to leave the ruins exactly as you found them for future generations to enjoy.
