TOP 25 DAY HIKES IN ARIZONA
Welcome to the Bigroads.com guide to the top 25 day hikes in Arizona!
There's so much more to hiking in Arizona than the Grand Canyon. In fact, there are several hundred trails across the state. With over 1000 miles of trails, it can be tough to decipher which trails are the very best in Arizona. We've done that homework for you, and as such, we are proud to present what we feel are the top 25 day hikes in Arizona. If you are blessed with an opportunity to hike any of these 5-star rated trails, you absolutely should!
Take note that we have purposely excluded the following types of trails: (a) those that require extensive cross-country ("bushwhacking") travel; (b) technical slot canyons; and (c) hikes that require extensive 4WD high clearance travel to get to the trailhead.
