What are the most beautiful hikes in Arizona?
Hiking in Arizona will bring you to some spectacular places. You can even hike through the entire state on the Arizona Trail, an 800-mile trail that spans across the whole state. If you’re looking for a shorter hike with impressive views, try the Siphon Draw Trail. This path will take you through some of the most incredible sights of the Sonoran Desert. With towering red cliffs and sweeping views of the desert, you’ll definitely want to bring a camera along to capture the scenery. West Fork of Oak Creek is a popular trail and for good reason. Meander along a creek and through the forest and you’ll be happy you took the trail.
Does Arizona have any natural wonders?
There are many natural wonders in Arizona beyond the Grand Canyon. The Chiricahua National Monument is one that will drop your jaw. The unusual geological formations, known as hoodoos, are eye-catching to say the least. They almost seem like they’re from another world. The Kartchner Caverns is another example of a bizarre, yet totally natural, and equally as stunning place in Arizona. The sides of the cave are covered in incredible shapes and formations. Speaking of geological formations, you’ll want to check out Petrified Forest National Park. These mineralized trees are fascinating to see in person.
What’s the most beautiful waterfall in Arizona?
Out of all these waterfall hikes in Arizona, which of the waterfalls could be considered the prettiest? Many would argue that Havasupai Falls would take that title. Some would even say that not only is it the prettiest in Arizona, but the entire country. It’s hard for other waterfalls to compete when this one is located within the Grand Canyon, with scenic surroundings and beautifully cascading water.
