Take A Scenic Hike On This Shaded, Kid-Friendly Trail In Arizona To Stay Cool
Hiking in Arizona – at least, in the southern portion of the state – is next to impossible during the warmer months. Luckily, the higher-elevation terrain of the Mogollon Rim area remains cool year-round, so you never have to take time off from exploring the great outdoors. Not only does the Woods Canyon Lake Trail offer plenty of shade, but it’s also incredibly scenic and kid-friendly. This easy stroll is easily one of the best summer hikes in Arizona (but it’s worth taking no matter the season).
